Jeff's Thoughts & Feelings Folllowing Day 3 of Chemo

Kathy and I are trying to let him have as much time to himself as possible in the mornings with Karen before she leaves for work/school and then we sort of step in for the late morning shift if you know what I mean, so we didn't show up until around 10am or so with a snack/lunch (sandwiches/cookies/juices/water) which he seems to enjoy. The most interesting thing thus far has been his willingness/desire to be so positive even though today was difficult with the nausea. He's taking a nap on our upstairs bed (because RIO keeps trying to lick his face down on the sofa...she's very sweet and knows something is not right) after watching a movie that he picked out from the RedBox Video Rental. If I could only get $0.03 from each rental throughout the country from those crazy RedBoxes, I'd be a happy camper. Today's photo's were taken as we just finished his treatment and along with beating him "silly" at Yahtzee where Kathy got the both of us with 3 of the 4 games played.

He really enjoys reading your emails and now the blogsite, so please keep em' coming, but maybe a slight cut down on the phone calls because he needs to rest (Kathy speaking...) or in therapy...don't think for a minute that we're speaking for him because he loves all of your support, but his rest is so important!!!

Oh yeah, there's a fish tank right next to Sean's Recliner Chair that is so awesome and the fish are very soothing to watch after a while because you can lose your thoughts in them as they swim around....YES, there's even a Nemo and he likes to hang around the top looking for his dad.........

Gotta run, but thank you again from Kathy, Natalie, Stephanie, RIO and all rock!!!
