Great day.  No pain thanks to new pain patch they prescribed for Rudy yesterday – Fentanyl

Knock on wood, but it looks like this may be just the ticket for now.  Hopefully, soon, the tumor will begin shrinking and meds can be reduced.

He slept last night.  He seemed relaxed and comfortable and seems good this morning, too.  Woo Hoo!

Bedtime – he began to feel a tiny bit funny in his tummy – he SHOULD have taken Zofran!

So many have mentioned that they'd like to visit. As great as it would be to see friends and family this weekend, Rudy really just wants to recuperate from yesterday and relax as much as possible while he sees how the long list of chemo side effects plays out. Hopefully, the effects won't be too bad - especially since this is just his first round.
