Princes white blood cell count was back up to a healthy level today, so he's had his Epirubicin chemotherapy. He's been much better since coming home, but has been really tired having had virtually no sleep last night and having been at the hospital all day. With his current need to sleep on his back, he's been taking advantage of being able to prop himself up against me and fall asleep with his legs in the air. This gives me ample opportunity to spoil him terribly and he gets some much needed sleep. A win - win situation for all!
He's still pretty lame, and of course has issues with his cystitis, but seems much happier today. Side effects from Epirubicin usually kick in a couple of days after treatment if they're going to occur, so I've got my fingers crossed that we won't have any problems.
Ultimately, I'm pleased with how he's doing today, and I think he is too. As an added bonus, because todays treatment is so strong, he won't get any chemotherapy next week so can have a week off from the hospital!
