Tummy pains

With the chemo yesterday, Pads woke up this morning with tummy pains - this is typical of Vincristine. To keep him 'freed up', we know now that he needs the strongest laxative known to man which adds to the tummy cramps... but it's worth it. Thus no school today.
3 pancakes tonight though was a very decent performance. We were just hooking him up to his night feed when the slightly sore throat he'd complained of escalated to yelping pain. Sitting up seemed to ease it but lying down again brought it right back... odd. No temperature, good neutrophils count... The hospital want us to wait 30 mins, so we'll see and keep you posted.
