Still in the hospital. Dr. Chao came by this morning and told Amy things were looking good , BUT he wanted to keep her in the hospital one more day to receive the IV antibiotics and make sure temperatures don't come back. So hopefully Amy will get to go home tomorrow. Amy's blood counts are really low and with that her energy level is low too. Sleeping/resting a lot, but we do hope to get out of the room for a walk later today. One of the main things bothering her now are mouth sores, which are a side effect of the chemo, and it makes it difficult to find things easy to eat that don't make it hurt worse. Lunch was yams w/marshmallows from K&W. :) I can honestly say that Duke University Hospital is a really great hospital, but their food is not the best. We will probably start mixing Amy some protein shakes to drink if the mouth sores get any worse. So praying she gets out tomorrow and the AC keeps working in the apartment, because it is really hot/humid here. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
