Good news officially back from Scott's MRI/MRV yesterday. The clot has been thinned and appears non-existant now. That is a great relieft that it was caught timely and the treatment used is working as well as anyone could expect.
However, still lots of worry as Scott still will not eat. He must eat in order to get released, and he knows this. I believe he's hesitant to eat because he afraid it will just bring on vomiting, which he's been doing each morning for the last several days. Trying to convince him that getting food in his stomach would stop the overload of acid and stop the nausea isn't easy, as realisticly he'll likely get sick the first time he does eat solid food.
Quite a mess indeed. However, the okay has been given to start his chemo 3-week cycle when his ANC reaches an acceptable level - which it isn't right now.
But it does appear we are getting close to having the clot situation solved, but not sure. They have also said the scan showed something called "mastoiditis", which seems to be inflammation of the mastoid bone. So just something new to toss in the mix.
That's about all the info we have on mastoiditis.
As Stephanie said - "this all just sucks".
