Whenever he's not feeling well I want to buzz about and "fix" it when what he probably really needs is some peace and quiet. But that makes me feel like I'm not helping. I have literally sat on my hands before to keep myself for fussing about.

She had the folfuri with a couple of others INsomething and Leusomething (sorry big words and I dont have the paper with me) The first 2 days when she still had the pump on she felt great, even energetic. It seems like as soon as she had her pump disconected she plumpeted. She had diarreha a couple of times, cant stand ANY smells, threw up once from the smell of me cooking supper, and she has been sleeping pretty much steady since yesterday afternoon. Does anyone know how long this will last, is there anything I can do? She'll wake up for about 15 minutes at a time at the most and then back to sleep. she is feeling bey down and I qoute "sorry for herself" she said maybe she sees why people quit doing chemo. She said if I have to live like this for 6 months, whats the point of living. Will it be this bad every time?
