our regular tuesday appt with Dr Qadri was a little upsetting but with some good news.Ed managed to pull some kind of a folly on the nurses and now they ALL look forward to seeing him and today was no different.He had them in laughter tears and we finally got his blood work done after a few trys at TRYING to be serious.His hemoglobin was down to 8.8,platelets up a few points at 35,but his red blood count is falling at 2.88.His weight went south, at 146 now.He was 151 Friday.This is a problem to me as he really eats well.So Dr Qadri has signed a prescription for PROCRIT shots once a week, which can only be given at the hospital.So I am planning to do this every Tuesday after lab. We still haven't received the REVLIMID so I called and the papers I filled out and sent in were not received, so I sent them again this afternoon by e-mail and will call in the morning and find someplace to fax the darn things.What really is madding is, they are the same papers we filled out last month and have to do every month as long as he is on the medication.And he has to take a survey every month explaining the side effects of the meds.
REVLIMID® (lenalidomide)

Next Appt is April 28th @ 2pm
