Clinic at 8:00 this morning. Joel is MPO which means no food or drink so I let him sleep until it is time to go. Joel didn't have to be coaxed out of bed this morning..... maybe cause he is hoping to being paroled for a few days. The hospital was nice and quiet this morning, Joel was the first one here. First he was weighed, measured and blood pressure was taken. Weight was down by a kilo but that is not much of a surprise. It is hard to get more than 2 meals into Joel now as the nausea has hit with a vengeance. Next his port was accessed, anti nausea medication started and blood work done. We had to wait for some blood counts to come back before treatment could start but Joel was in the procedure room by 8:30 this morning. Sometimes he doesn't get in until after lunch.
After the lumbar puncture he will have to lay flat for at least half an hour in order to prevent a headache and I will head over to Starbucks to get him a coffee or chai tea.
