This Dost Suck!

I'm too tired to write a real post - my babies are both sick, and I'm walking 10km for charity tomorrow, so I'm just going to copy and paste what I had on my facebook page.

So my amazing husband Ken is fighting hard right now - he's supposed to be on recovery so that begin his next round of chemo soon. In the last two days, he's had to have two platelet transfusions, and two units of red blood cells to replace what the chemotherapy has destroyed. He has also picked up some sort of an infection in his blood, which is causing him to run a fever. To treat that, they ... want him to come to the day clinic and have IV antibiotics three times a day while on outpatients.

Am I wrong to think that if he's this sick, he should be hospitalized again? All the treatments he's currently having to undergo are causing him to miss his meals at the Cancer Lodge, so he's having to spend more money on food (3 meals a day are included with his stay at the Cancer Lodge, but they are at set times), as well as having to spend lots of money on cab fare (the Mason's transportation program doesn't run on weekends or in the evenings). And at this rate, he's rapidly blowing through the funding he received for lodging.

I say, this dost suck!
