When I got back from the train and to the hospital,I found out Ed had a really bad night.About midnight he woke up and said he didn't feel good.They took his blood count and found his HGB had dropped a point to 6.So they had to prepare him for another transfusion.He was tired and very weak and was not in a good mood to say the least.He had not eaten in almost 24 hours and that was not good either.I ask if they ever got a weight on him when he brought up and they said it was 144.It's hard enough to keep the weight on him, let alone gain any.He had a CAT scan of his chest and abdomin and they found his Spleen has enlarged again and is now full of small tumors.So we now know where the blood is going.
Dr. Qadri wants us to go to San Antonio and see a Dr. who works with Cancer Patients and does experimental tests and drugs.We want to know why we need another Dr on the case and Dr.Qadri saud he is doing all he can here that Ed is being kept alive with the transfusions and we need to try something new.Ed's not sure he wants to keep this up as it's hard enough to go to Houston and back.And now with more Drs and more tests,he's just not sure.But Dr.Qadri and I talk him into making the appointment and just hearing him out.
He will make us an appointment and call tomorrow.
