Scott & Sunny

Wednesday, June 13, 2007

Scott is getting blood at the moment. Dr. Rossbach has said he can go home this afternoon if he has no fever when he checks on him then. He was in a bad way through the night, and was given morphine this morning. His legs were hurting, jaw was hurting and he was just exhausted.

His red blood count has dropped about 25% since last week, so the doc said if that were one of us, we'd be basically useless and hardly be able to walk. It is typical for his red count to drop at this stage of the cycle, but just dropped a bit more than normal. Of course we also have to remember he was delayed a week on chemo, and was borderline last week to get it then.

It all relates together in some way, but it is very complicated.

He did have an EKG this morning, and was schedule for an ECG tomorrow (this was due to the normal cycle of that test and was due). They are going ahead with that today so he doesn't have to wait late tomorrow afternoon.

So now we wait and hope he has no temperature this afternoon so he can sleep at home before tomorrow's clinic visit and leg shots. Stephanie needs sleep as well. I don't think she slept at all, and I know Scott hasn't.
