Xmas Day - Side effects really kicking in

The side effects of the treatment were on full display today, dad had cripling stomach cramps all day :( He had a blood test yesterday and was told he needed to be given extra platelets. After a 7 hour wait at the hospital they finally arrived from another hospital. He has been called back in for 2 further top ups before the end of the year before he starts back on the Velcade in January.

Today was the worst I have seen him look in quite a while, he was looking quite frail and weak, the loss of appetite doesn't help either , but he is trying to eat little bits throughout the day which is something I guess. Feeling quite helpless today....wish I could do something....anything....just to make it go away, even if it was just for a little while. His grand-daughter, my little girl makes him smile, even though she is going through the terrible twos at the moment, he absolutely adores her ! I think i'll take her over in the morning.
