Day 4 at MD Anderson

Hi there everyone!
This is our first day blogging and so here is the daily scoop:
This is now dad's 4th day as an inpatient at MD Anderson. We are in a private room that is very nice- lots of warm wood tones and a nice flat screen tv with lots of free on demand movies to watch. The nurses have been very nice and very helpful. He was having some trouble getting a full night's sleep at first but we are happy to say that he GOT ONE last night and finally got some much needed rest! He did start running a little fever last night, which can be a side effect of the chemotherapy but they put him on some antibiotics just to be on the safe side. He is also having some swelling and tenderness in his left foot still- but we have it elevated and are going to hopefully take a little walk after he gets his lunch and see if that helps at all! He doesn't have a great appetite since the fever started but he is still managing to put away the food ;) you know MEL!
Well, that's all for now and I will try and update everyone again later this evening before I leave! For now we are watching "That 70's Show"! - Laughter is the best medicine after all!
Love you all and please keep the prayers a comin!!
