Today has been a day. We knew it would be because it always is. It actually started with a phone call from my bestest. Her daughter had a seizure and spent the day at the hospital. They are home now. We did not have the chance to meet up with them. I am glad for that. Part of me was hoping to share a room though! :) Prayers for Kaylin are welcome.
Gary is doing good. I don't know what to make of his itching and irritability (well at least they don't) but his strength is great. The doctors are thinking about this being the last cytoxan treatment. This is good, and nerve racking. I think it is nerve racking for them as well. His levels are good. He does however have elevated liver levels. Predisone can cause that so they ran some other tests tonight to help determine if it is indeed from the steroid. The rash on his face and on the inside of his hand that is not related to the disease, they think it may be yeast or maybe a form of eczema. I asked about him being on steroids and the likely hood that a eczema rash would survive that. She agreed it would not survive it. I am not sure what to make of it. It is spreading slowly over his face. It is nothing dramatic but its there.
My niece Bryanna came with us to the hospital. Unfortunately they won't let her stay because of a recently changed policy. It is just as well. She nearly fainted when Gary was getting his IV. When it was all over I turned around. There she was CORPSE color. "What are you doing!? Don't do that!" All's I could think is that my sister is gonna kill me for not listening to her and sending her out while it was done. LOL Weenie. One thing we learned, Bryanna is not cut out for nursing.
As the rain pounds on our window and lightening dances across the sky here in Seattle, Gary and I will snuggle the night away in our hospital bed.
