|The view from Chris' hosptial room|
They took blood tests, gave him antibiotics and went over all of the symptoms that Chris is having. We also met with the pharmacist while we waited for Chris' blood work to come back. We were basically told that although Chris is feeling okay right now, that by the end of the week he will likely start developing mouth sores (known as mucositis), losing his appetitie, developing diarrhea, and becoming extremely run down. Needless to say it was not the most upbeat meeting. However, the pharmacist did share Chris' love for cars, so they spend a considerable amount of time discussing what type of cars the other doctors drove and their favourite type of Ferraris (I zoned out during this part). This seemed to cheer him up considerably.

While he is not very descriptive when I ask him how he is feeling, he is saying that " he just doesn't feel well."
