Back on the dex

Pads pain and lethargy after the day at Heatherton were not that surprising although the pain was a worry. He was ill shortly after having all his morning meds too so we didn't know where we stood. At least this cycle of chemo (temozolomide) is over so that makes the drug round less complex, and his blood count might improve from the HB of just 10 it was the other day.
Eventually Ally phoned the ward and the Dr advised starting a course of steroids. By 5pm he was wanting to give the evening service a go and he tottered from the car to his place in the back room. By today the Dexamethasone had really helped: Pads was up quite early, keen to visit Auntie Ruth's again where he's spending the night.
