Scott is doing okay thankfully. We are very pleased that he has managed at home, and so far, has not had to be re-admitted.
The antibiotics and antifungals are wreaking havoc with his stomach but we are getting them down and hopefully they are doing their job in killing the pneumonia. Due to this he has been housebound since coming home which is a shame because he could really do with a little fresh air and exercise. We also have no idea how his anc is at this point. It dropped every day that he was inpatient and when we left it was at 1100. Add 6mp (chemo) to a falling anc and it could well have bottomed out. Having said that, he could be tolerating the chemo and recovering. We may be pleasantly surprised come Thursday. We have no way of knowing which way it is going and we are taking no chances. The last thing he needs is another infection, hospital stay or a worsening of his pneumonia.
Scott is managing to eat again, not a lot, but he’s doing pretty darn well all things considered. We’re also closely monitoring his temperature and fluid intake. He is taking ativan and zofram for his nausea and probiotics to try and stem his other ‘problem’. We are keeping an eye on his color and energy and watching for any sign of jaundice and so far, he looks great. He is breathing okay and doing his lung exercises with his flutter valve but still, no coughing!!! Weird.
All in all he is happy. He is home, he has his cat, and he has a new video game. He also has a house full of his peeps running around at his beck and call.
I’ll update again on Thursday. I am desperately, desperately hoping for good blood work and to be able to start his chemo and steroids. Thursday is also our 4th wedding anniversary so if all goes well at clinic then maybe we can relax and kick it up a notch later in the day. That’d be nice!
