It was change bandage on PICC line day,lad and first Procrit shot.He really hates Tuesdays and Fridays as we now have to change the dressings, and caps on his Picc line.This week's change was a bad one as he had some bleeding and it was really stuck but the insuration site was clean and looked good,but he was in a really bad mood for a while.He does have a habit of using that arm for heavy work and lifting putting some pressure on the site.
His hemoglobin was 9.0 and his HBC is up @ 3-11,we are watching his platelets @ 25.If they go below 20 he will need a platelet transfusion which he has not had yet.
He had his first PROCRIT shot at the hospital [with his favorite nurse DIANNE][who gives him what-fer] and was told we won't see much climb in his RBC count for a few weeks.
He did go shopping with me some but tired out and it was getting hot out so we came home,turned on the AC and closed up the house and the temperature rose in the house..We called Pat and Quitman came over and helped and we got it back online and it finally cooled down.But i was really worried as he was on the verge of a heat stroke.But he went to bed feeling better but very tired....
Then we went to have lunch and he had a CHOCOLATE dipped cone..
