Mid-day

By midday yesterday, Michael had been sleeping for most of the day...the temp still hovered around 100...
but things just did not seem right to me..."due diligence"..."woman's intuition" call it whatever....I called the Doctors office right  after their lunch...explaining that he was extremely fatigued...very pale in color...the tumors had suddenly popped out again...low grade temp continued....So...I had him get dressed and in the office we went....All sorts of blood work was done...cultures were taken...IV fluid was administered for 2 hours..prednisone was prescribed....and a bone marrow biopsy will be scheduled once we get approval....It seems that either that last doze of chemo complete knocked him down and his bone marrow just can't handle anymore or the lymphoma has filled so much of his bone marrow that it is not allowing enough new cells to be produced....
Today, he feels a bit better...and actually has some color....and the plan is to still have a nice kid friendly dinner with the little love and open up presents...cake and ice cream for the 4 of us!!
BE WELL....

Oh my dears I've just been reading your postings in an attempt to catch up and I'm so sorry for what I've read.My heart goes out to you both, your journey in so many ways mirrors the path we are now traveling and it is something that I do not want for anyone.

What keeps me sane sometimes is the life that our grandchildren bring into this house, when they are here it feels like home. I am so happy for you and Michael having your "little love".

Circumstances have kept me away from your writings too long, but you both are in my thoughts sometime during each day.

You are surrounded in love. May that somehow, someway bring you peace.
