We moved rooms last night ready for a new setting well actually a new level of care. Due to unexpected arrival through ER, Gary was placed on a general internal medicine floor. Due to the fact that he is a cancer patient, he needs to be on the hemotology/oncology floor. The right doctors are important but knowledgable support staff is important also. We are on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMT) where low blood counts and blood transfusions are routine.
He has had some relief from the fevers. It does not go as high and has dropped in normal range at times.
His WBC is .4 today and ANC still not measurable.
Doctors feel that the current medication is working. Gary hates the antifungal med voriconizol due to side effects of vision issues. But it is the best fungus fighter the docs can find.
No further tests scheduled for today. He had a spinal this morning and we should get some results this afternoon.
Gary asks "can you just leave me alone and let my body rest and catch up?"
