Changed the 4 to a 3. Ran downstairs to get homade chicken soup for Scott that Karen made, ended up gabbing and missed the doctors. It does not sound like they have any new news. Just focused on the Weekend being Scott's upturn. He is much much more tired today than yesterday. Last night was another crap night for sleep..the nurses were in every 20 minutes to an hour. We had a bad lab, it showed his magnesium levels being sky high, so they did an ekg and redrew blood - that was about 2am. No way to get back to sleep until the labs came back normal. They think he got a blood draw while he was getting IV magnesium so it read high. I was freaking out because high magnesium causes cardiac issues.
So Scott is just sleeping now. He still has a fever. Still on oxygen. Still can't hear me unless I yell. Still has rash. Still coughing up blood. I think it will just be a long blah day. He did try to eat some cereal, just has no appetite. Hoping for an uneventful day of rest for him, so we are another day closer to things turning around.
Thank you all for continuing to pray for him. I miss his sense of humor. I'll know he is on the mend when he starts joking around again.
