This chemo week has been good for Charlie. He went in the hospital weighing 138.5 lbs. and decided that was enough weight that he was going to lose and has been eating really well. It has helped him to regain some strength. Today he will be coming home. It has been a long stretch of staying in the hospital. Charlie and I were talking about how many nights he has stayed in the hospital and in these last two stays... out of fourteen days, he has stayed eleven of them. We are both tired, but our spirits are up. His pain has been managed and is in control. He has nine chemo treatments left.
