Xofigo this morning, slept since lunch. I'll think about
that as the radium already working and the body at rest to add its energy to the radium. Did not expect that hubby will have CBC every week, at least during this first round, to ensure his counts stay up. We will know by Thursday if he's going to have the major side effects. He has regular appt with medical oncol next Tues including CBC plus CM'P, PSA. I'm hoping it's not too early to see the PSA go down!
