Melissa's class with their new doctor toys!
Steve, too, has been helpful this week. Melissa's car battery died in the school parking lot on Thursday. He resumed his job as her chauffeur on Friday. Today he put a new battery in her car. Melissa now has her wheels back!
Melissa has handled chemo well! She is very tired but is also good about napping. Her hair has really begun thinning and shedding. She and I went hat shopping and bought a few stylin' caps! Melissa had a rash on her legs on Wednesday evening. We phoned the "on call" oncologist. Steve and I bought benadryl and zantac and the rash started to disappear within the hour. Amazing!!
We've had fun visiting with my cousin from Arizona, Mary Jo, and her mom, my Aunt Marion. We met my cousin Mark's wife, Pam and their daughters, Justine and Anna, for bagels this morning. Melissa, Justine, and Anna were in the same sorority at UNL. Melissa's friend Curtis, is in town from New York. His parents are also in town from Wisconsin. She went out to dinner with friends from the McCarthy Engineering group.
Her "Aunt-Pac" continues to support her on a regular basis. Thank you Aunt Ginny, Aunt Kathy, Aunt Sally, and Aunt Nancy.
We thank all of you as we continue on this journey with Melissa. It truly is what life is all about!
