Home and doing well

I just realized that I never sent you an update on how Greg's been since Saturday!

Greg was able to come home on Sunday evening and he's been doing really well since.  He's sleeping a lot because he's so worn out from the whole ordeal he's been through, but he's also more alert and feeling better than he was last week in between treatments.

The doctors have determined that it was the Rituxan (the chemo med) that is causing his awful headaches.  They wrote him a prescription for the steroid that has helped stopped the headache both times he was in the hospital - and he'll take it the day before, the day of, and the day after his next two Rituxan treatments.  We are really thankful that they have a plan going into this week's treatment, and we're hoping that he'll get through it without having to be admitted to the hospital!

His treatment is at 6:30am Friday, and I know that he would appreciate your prayers that day.  The key time seems to be 10-12 hours after the treatment ends, because that is when the headaches developed after the last two treatments.  I will let you know how things go this weekend.

Thanks for walking through this with us!
