Well dad slept pretty well last night but may not sleep as well tonight as it will be back in the hospital. His platelets dropped back down to a 2, which is not good considering he had a transfusion yesterday; his red blood held its own- which is not bad and his white count increased by 0.2........... he was able to get a big bag of single donor platelets today which we found encouraging..... then, he discovered blood in his stool while still at the hospital - that is of course a symptom that they take very seriously! So, as a result he is being re-admitted to the hospital as an in-patient and they are going to give him a 2nd platelet transfusion tonight and a unit of blood. He is still carrying a lot of fluid even though there has been some reduction, his stomach area is really bloated. The sores in his mouth have improved some, and the blood in his nose has gotten a little better as well. We still do not have the rest of the biopsy, antibody, or DNA testing results back, and probably won't until mid-week next week. PLEASE PLEASE say prayers that they quickly figure out what is going wrong and that the find it easy and fast to fix! We are all pretty emotionally exhausted with all of the ups and downs......so, please pray for us to all feel encouragement from the BIG GUY in the SKY! Also, please pray for mom specifically - she has been so steadfast and strong at his side taking the best care anyone could of him! Love to all and more as soon as we know more!
