Day 2 Chemo, Cycle 1

Everything was the same with an addition of 30mg Bleomycin jab.
No complications with the jab in the butt! :)
Today it took even longer as Pavel didn't fancy the Mannitol running fast...he wants to take it slow and enjoy himself :D

7:30am - 2:30pm about 7 hours total infusion time

Pavel is doing well and strong! =) Getting used to having the cannula around, as it's left on and not removed. BUT Fionna has been knocked out...Pavel is sitting comfortably in the chair while Fionna was sleeping in his bed nicely from 8am - 1130am. Totally zonked out!

Back to Day 1 infusion routine.
All is well and Pavel is doing great!
Today it's good time :)

Both of us are doing well in the hospital and getting used to it there :)

Pavel is getting a bit tired, so he took a nap just now for about an hour =)
