My friend David is really struggling again, back in hospital undergoing chemotherapy & struggling with horrid side effects….. He loves getting comments on his blog, so if you have a few minutes maybe pay him a visit & say hello
Hi all, this is David’s mum/Janet.
Things are getting a bit tough for Dave at the moment, meaning more time spent at the hospital than he’d like. To try and keep his white cell count (leukaemia) under control he’s on oral chemo, but this means that his platelets keep dropping to scarily low levels. The doctors just can’t keep up with them!
All of this has meant that Dave’s nose has been bleeding regularly for the last 5 days, and today the sores in his mouth have been bleeding too. Quite frustrating and uncomfortable for him. He’s also been struggling to eat and drink since Friday, feeling like something is stuck in his gullet. This has meant some longer than usual hospital appointments while he’s been hooked up to fluids to stop him from getting dehydrated.
Despite all of this, Dave enjoyed a nice weekend watching sport in his flat…
