Infection Fighting

The doctors made their rounds. This is a teaching hospital so they come in a group of 5 or 6. It is pretty obvious which doctor is in charge, they are the only ones that talk. He feels to have narrowed the source of infection to Gary's mouth ulcers or mediport. If we could choose we would choose the mouth but unfortunately we don't have a choice. They are going to start a 3rd antibiotic today. He just had an EKG and will get a chest catscan to see whats going on in lungs.
He told me there was alot of hair on his pillow. So I pulled at a gray one on his head and it came out easy and he didn't feel it. Losing hair is the least of his worries at this point.
He is getting a platelet transfusion now and will get two more units of blood next.
Keep the prayers coming!

Hey there. We're praying like crazy around here and know he will feel better soon. Just talked to my parents and they said Florida is cold -- your folks picked a good time to head home!

We love you guys!

Hi, guys. Sorry to hear that Gary feels so miserable. We're rooting for those antibiotics to whip that infection very soon.
