Hi all- I am once again updating from my phone... We did get dad discharged last night and made it to bobbie's about 8:30pm- however our stay was sadly cut short :-(
At about 2am dad was having so much pain in his left leg that he couldn't sleep and his temperature was creeping up but not fevered yet. He said he wanted to just wait and see how he felt by morning. I decided to go ahead and bunk in with him at that point. By 4am we were up again the pain was worse and he had started to run fever- so we called the nurses station and told them what was going on and they said that since it was a "new pain" we should go to the ER. So we packed up and headed back out to MDAnderson.
We didn't have to wait to long- of course once we were here the fever subsided and the pain had lessened some. However, I am still glad we came since we didn't want to take any chance that it could be a blood clot. They have run several labs and everything has come back clear. He ran low fever one more time since we have been here and right now they have him getting an ultrasound to check for a clot.
When he gets back to the room and the doctor comes to see us again I will update everyone again.
Rough night and morning - please pray for clear answers!
Love to all!
