Monday: I think it was a good, quiet day. It's already hard to remember. In the evening--one week since the Keytruda infusion--I noticed that my feet were itching a little.
Tuesday: I woke up with a terribly itchy rash covering my feet and starting on my hands. We wrote back and forth with my doctor in Kyiv, sent her pictures, and got a list of medicines. Will went out to buy them. I took the pills, put on the cream, and enjoyed visiting with friends for a few hours. By evening the rash was completely gone. I am so thankful for an accessible doctor and medicine that works!
Wednesday: As the doctor had planned back when we were in Kyiv, we had blood work done for the halfway point between infusions. We sent her the results, and she was pleased. My iron levels are going up. I'm still anaemic, but getting better.
Thursday: Our landlady is here from Italy (staying out front with the other family), and she had the windows and doors replaced everywhere in the house where they were still the old wooden kind. Bogdan was fascinated and "helped" the workers almost all day long. They were actually really patient with all the kids and got everything done by late evening.
Friday: Raia's birthday! (And cleanup from the aftermath of the windows and doors.) Four of Raia's friends came over, Will grilled chicken, and we had a great time celebrating.
