The kids came today (Apr 3rd). They brought some paintings and sang for mama. Here is a video
Last night she didn’t sleep well. Yesterday’s chemo left her with nausea, uneasiness and a metallic taste in her mouth. She was tired and generally uneasy. Finally she asked for a sleeping pill around 2 am and slept well the rest of the night. Full disclosure: It’s embarrassing that I’m sleeping all night and waking up only once in a while.
This morning Dr. Vusirikala was very happy with Rachana’s progress. She said red blood and platelet counts were up on their own – which is great news. The liver and other key organs are responding well – so chemo’s side effects are under control. In the Dr’s words – Rachana is doing great and is above average in her recovery.
