Umm...I think dad and I areTo which I replied:
going to get a philly cheese
steak. Is this the worst
Yes. But do it anyway.And she did! And she didn't get sick! Well, not from the cheesesteak anyway, but yay!
She's also been able to get up and walk around a bit outside the past few days, which is a huge improvement. Here's hoping that the improvements continue.

(Someone please tell my dad that… and maybe mention that he should let me take Melissa for a drive when I come home for Thanksgiving.)

Sunday and Monday were pretty trying for Melissa. Dad was originally not going to let me speak to Melissa on Monday night because she was feeling so ill. She did pick up for the phone for literally a few sentences to simply say I love you.
Tuesday night she claimed she felt “almost human again.” She’s been able to get out of the house and go for drive with Dad for a bit. Her appetite has also returned to pre-chemo status, including a resurgence in her craving for a Philly cheese steak sandwich. That doesn’t mean she’s actually eating Philly cheese steak sandwiches, just craving them.

Our Uncle Kevin suggested replacing the fake deer with fake flamingos. This may create a whole new set of problems…
I spoke briefly with Melissa. She’s definitely starting to feel the effects of the chemo. Fatigue and nausea are the words of the day. It’s expected, just praying that it passes sooner rather than later.
