Chemo Round Two

Put Another One In The Books

Alec WinsRound two of chemo is finally over! Up until now he was feeling and doing really well. The chemo is starting to catch up with him. He started the second round of chemo on Monday, and got a hit of it everyday until Friday. He says he just has that nauseous throw up feeling all the time combined with feeling super tired all day. He isn’t looking for sympathy, but if your leaning that way… he likes apple pie a lot!   He still went to school everyday this week though, that alone shows how tough he is. All he has to say is “I don’t feel well” and he can stay home. He is falling behind in school though, but he is doing what he can to keep up.

Alec and BraydonI moved back up to Rexburg this week :/, so I wasn’t there to beat him in his video games, and help him through the week. But, he still has some of his almost as favorite family members at home to help him out. I do skype with him a bunch though. The pic on the right was from us skyping today. We both dyed our hair to a darkish redish color!! We are probably both in the top 225 list of the best looking dudes in Utah, which is pretty impressive when you consider how many guys live in Utah.

Jake the Dog Flies in Wednesday

Wednesday morning, at like 7 am, we will pick up Jake the Dog from the airport. Everyone is pretty stoked about it, except for the mom. It’s okay, she will get over it. Love you mom 🙂 We will have lots of pictures of him for next weeks post. Also, next week I will give you more details about a couple huge tests that are coming up. Depending on how these tests go will determine if he needs to start doing radiation treatments along with the chemo stuff.
