There will be better days

I desperately wanted to title this post as "Some days are worse than others" but trying to be positive forced me to choose a title with a positive word and note.

Shivam had his chemotherapy dose of vincristine and daunorubicin on Friday (along with bone marrow aspirite). These medicines make one feel very sick in the stomach. Since morning, he has not been eating anything, thrown up many times and now he is running fever in the warning range. We have been monitoring it every half hour since 10 PM but it is not going down. The poor kid is totally nauseated and we are on a war path to give him anti-nausea medicines (after talking with Dr. Rabi Hanna who is oncall tonight at Children's). Today he is clinging to Urmila and not me. I guess when in extreme pain, one thinks of Mom more than Dad.

Hopefully, tomorrow will be better.

Sounds like you guys are doing an awesome job keeping things light. I am amazed that while so much is going on you are taking the time and effort to update your posts. This is truly commendable.
