We had a chat late this afternoon with Gary's regular hemonc doctor- the one that he sees in clinic and we trust. She was very concerned about Gary's condition tonight- his breathing is labored, blood pressure high, fevers continue, etc. They dr team feels that Gary's pneumonia is getting worse without much chance of improving. Without his own neutrophils and a very resistant bacteria, we are in a difficult place.
The drs kinda recommended stopping the neutrophil transfusion for this evening. Gary kept asking when am I going to get the blood. Gary's sister arrived from Denver this afternoon and we decided to go on with the transfusion. Donor #6 volume 253cc- they are going to work hard in those lungs.
Gary is restless but his overall happy self making jokes which we do not always understand.
I decided that the kids needed to visit him this evening. We are not sure how his condition will change in the next few days. All he could talk about his having a pizza party with big Cokes. None of us were hungry so I ordered one from food service for him. It arrived and he said this was not what I was expecting. I think we will have a big pizza party with him tomorrow with pizza from Pizza House or Cottage Inn.
We also moved to room #4 at the hospital. A large double room that Gary has all to himself.
God is surrounding our family with his love and lots of angels which seems to arrive at just the right moment.
The bone marrow could decide to recover at any time- the time in now the time is tonight. Keep the faith- God has a plan!
