Day 6 has brought on a blood and platelet transfusions. My platelets were 2 this morning,so I had atransfusion and hemoglobin was 7.9, under 8 so it earned me two bags of red blood. Mouth sores are still here, my throat is really sore, so eating is becoming challenging, dinner was hard. Overall I am still feeling pretty well, able to get up and keep busy all day, and put makeup on still!
Grandpa Phil arrived and the kids had a good time so far showing him around, they were excited he was here. We had a long visit today and the kids went to open art and did some painting.
Tonight is going to be challenging, I was apparently retaining more of the fluids they are giving me than they want, so the nurse just gave me half hour ago a diuretic shot, and I been up and in the bathroom three times already in 20 minutes, I guess there wont be much sleep tonight. There is not a whole lot of rest around here as it is, usually from 11 p.m. - 4 a.m. is when they leave you alone to rest the most, then they are in here drawing labs and blood pressures at 4 a.m. and you have to try and go back to sleep after that. The fun of a hospital!
