Day 2

Today was a long day for Robert. This morning he had his Hickman catheter put in, also known as a triple lumen. He will have this catheter in his chest the whole time that he is in Salt Lake. This afternoon he had his second round of radiation, and it went well. It only took an hour and a half, which was a big improvement over yesterday. Apparently since it was his first round of radiation it was more time consuming, it took three hours. He has had some itchiness because of it, and it makes him very tired, but so far so good. Unfortunately his headaches continue to bother him, and he had to get IV liquids yesterday because he was getting dehydrated. We are really hoping that those pesky headaches will stop bothering him soon, there are other things he should get to focus on. (like his adorable, incredible wife, and eating whatever his heart desires)
Both Robert and Ashley are holding up well. We are so grateful for the incredible care available for Robert, and for all of your love and prayers. Thank You!
