Let me tell you, his doctor and my hubby learned to use my health journal as a barometer on gaging the side effects of
the medicine and weather he needs this or that during treatment. I was doing it to help me know how he was doing, but it became a super helpful part of his treatment too. Brought the calendar t every visit.
I would just write one word things like Mon, Tired, fever, yellow, nausea, no appetite. Tues, tired, pissy attitude, better color.
