It was another rough night for Gary- it is impossible to get continuous sleep in the hospital the place that you need it most. I am on patrol today trying to minimize distruptions so he can sleep.
CTScan of his lungs this morning showed more irritation in the lungs- his meds have been changed to cover any type of lung bacteria/fungus.
He is still drinking and eating some throughout the day knowing it is important to keep nourished.
They have not been able to do lumbar puncture/spinal tap due to low platelets. Although he did receive a transfusion last night his platelets lowered to 34 and need to be 50.
WBC is .5 again and ANC not measurable. Enough time was elapased since neulasta shot so he will start neupogen shots today.
