Well, the Lasix had minimal effect on the swelling (ascites). Tony's abdomen is still quite distended and painful. It keeps him in bed most of the day. He gets up to eat, but eating causes him some pain... I spoke to his nurse today and she'll have the treatment room oncologist have a look at him tomorrow. Hopefully, he'll do a paracentesis as - apparently - this is the one thing that would help reduce the swelling and make him more comfortable. Also, it would be good if they could minimize the excess fluid before they inject the chemo... Because, tomorrow is chemo day!
I stopped by work today... It was really nice to see friendly faces... Sorry I couldn't get around to seeing everyone, but I had to pick up the boys. Richard didn't go to football tonight because his thumb hurt too much. He injured it at practice on Monday. I took him to a local clinic after dinner to make sure it isn't broken. Unfortunately, by the time we saw the doctor, the x-ray clinic was closed.
That's it for now... Let's hope that tomorrow brings Tony some relief.
Take good care everyone!
