Update - 7:30pm
No Doppler today, they will do it tomorrow. Just as well, Scott is really wiped out today. Occupational therapy came by and had him do his exercises. He passed with flying colors. Still not really eating, although he ate a yogurt to appease me today. The docs said that he needs more protein to keep the fluids from leaking out of cells, that is what edema is. So I went to the store again and got protein drink smoothies, bolthouse and naked brands. Got a variety and good thing. Brought him a chocolate thing and he would not even try it, more in a fruit mood.
He just got platelets, no red blood tonight, so yay, better chance of 2 hours uninterrupted sleep! they take his CBC blood around 2am, and those are the results we get when the docs come by. Anxious to see if the WBC went up. That is really what is going to get him out of this valley.
Got mail today, city hall card, very nice, and a package from my friend Barb. We worked together at UWGB, and despite her own trials and tribulations, she has been a great support. She sent the dog, and I busted out laughing when I realized it was THE Taco Bell Dog, hence the video vs. a pic.
That's all for now, pray hard. Thanks.
Not much new, docs just left, wbc still .2, red blood holding (has not needed a transfusion in 2 days!) chest xray from yesterday shows the same, which the docs said is great news.
Will post more later, need to get laundry done and return by 2pm as they are holding off on a dopler of his arm and his water pills till I return per my request. I don't trust them taking him to another building for a test. Gloves and masks.....I am the Nazi.
