Last hi-dose infusion

Well, that was the last dose of chemo that anyone expects him to get. Once again, it passed fairly well. Yesterday the nose-bleed was accompanied by a drop in blood pressure but although we had the former, we did not see the latter today. We are thus grateful to be at the end of this week of treatment, each dose being very harsh. It seems like his kidneys were up to it and there were no spikes in temperature or troubling variations in blood pressure. Yet the actual chemo, while risky, is is not the really hard part - that still lies ahead. The consultant is urging us to take him out tomorrow as, from Monday, he's in isolation and will probably spend a lot of that feeling very unwell.
