Day +9

Administered Bob’s IV antibiotic this morning, pushed him to take the good drugs so he doesn’t puke in the car, and made it to the clinic by 9.

WBC 100 today.  HCT 34. PLT 20.  Great bump from PRBCs but not such a good PLT bump.  Oh well….patience.   The fever work- up requires a chest X-ray,  so we get to go visit the hospital again.

The Creatinine is moving in the right direction too, 1.6 today.  The docs are still a bit concerned about kidney function.  We’re not concerned.  We will continue to receive a liter of fluids IV every day at clinic, and now we’ll also give a liter of fluids at home every day.  “Just keep him hydrated”, the nephrologist told us when he knew Bob was going for transplant.  He’ll be fine.  His kidneys are great.  Remember all the prayers over those kidneys?  They have no choice but to perform as God created them to.  Amen

Mom said she and dad went shopping this morning.  Good, that means she’s feeling better.  She’s going to come over today and visit.  yah!!!  I may just cook her dinner.

Weird side-note:  so the nurse that came last night was on-call.  She didn’t act too happy to be there at 11 pm.  Complained a lot about getting calls late at night.  Weird…she was there to help us…Not complain to us.   Do people realize the bad attitudes they carry around are unattractive at the least…and could even be quite harmful to others.  Note to self:  be NICE no matter what.
