Phase 2

Yesterday we went to the hospital to speak to the dietician and the Chemotherapy teaching nurse.

The dietician told us that my dad needs to eat more protein (110-115 grams) and drink more fluids (32-64oz)

The financial counselor went over billing, which was great and very informative.

The chemo nurse told us what signs to look for when my dad is doing the chemotherapy treatments. How to handle the medicine, where to store it, what symptoms they should be aware of, etc.

When he starts, he will have 4 weeks on, 2 weeks off with a doctor visit, then 4 weeks on, 2 weeks off with a doctor visit, etc.
