Last day of chemo.

Sigve was having the best day since he came in. He woke up early, got up, showered and did some exercises. His appetite is a bit down, due to increasing mouth soreness, but a nurse gave him a local anesthesia diluted in cream to relieve the soreness during eating. Food is important in order to keep his strength up. Then around 2 pm his temperature started rising, and he got frost rushes, so he went back to bed, and I went to pick up Hilde Marie and Leon.  
When we got back he was ok again, and we spent a lovely afternoon and evening together. Hilde Marie's friend Randi came to visit too. Very nice, it's been a while since we have seen her. 

This evening I drove back to Tysnes for 1 or 2 nights. If everything still goes well with Sigve, I'll be here for 2 nights. I feel, and know that taking care of myself is important, but it's not easy. Staying away from the hospital, however hard it is, is also self care. My mind knows this. I am trying to teach it to my heart.

Now we wait for when he has to be in isolation.

Gratitude for a home I can call my own :-)
