Well this has been a really bad day.Ed is so frustrated, he was up so much last night with the shoulder pain.And then we go for our weekly lab only to find out his HGB [hemoglobin] is down to 7.9, platelets down to 30.,and RBC [red blood cells] down to 2.59. And his attitude is really down.He is short tempered,very grumpy,with a loss of appetite. So we know what this means-- he's off to the hospital for cross matching and will get another transfusion tomorrow. Or as he calls it another oil change.So we are off in the morning by 7am and about 1pm return home feeling a little better with a better attitude.
The only problem is I wonder how bad tonight is going to be when I have to give him his Dexamethzone,which usually makes him sleepy and want to go to bed early.I guess I'll find out soon enough.
