John is discharged from hospital

John was discharged from the hospital yesterday (Thursday) to Hope Lodge.  His fever is down.  Not completely down but a lot better.  I am hoping they didn't discharge him too soon.  When they released him he had no fever, because he was on antibiotics 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in the hospital.  Now he gets an antibiotic once a day.  I give him the antibiotic myself.  It is an IV antibiotic that I have to give him at Hope Lodge through his PICC line.  

His creatin level (kidney function) is improving.  It is still very poor but is improving.  And his counts are very low, which is just one of the reasons why we are still here in Hershey.  But his counts are improving, and slowly but surely are coming around.  Hopefully the doctors will soon find out WHY he is having problems with his counts.  Anyway, his white count is improving.  He is getting special shots called Neupogen shots to artificially stimulate his white blood count.

Okay, the cool thing is that in ten days (or maybe two weeks?)  we will be allowed to go home!  We are so excited.  We are praying that everything runs smoothly and this comes about.  We can't wait to see our family, our home, and our kitty!  Just to get back to our normal life again.  How exciting!

Okay, love you all, Krissy :)

  2. That is very, VERY good news!!!  I know you are ready to get home, but on the other hand don't want to rush things and end up back where you are.  At least things are starting to go in the right direction for you again.  Give John my best, and I hope you both are home very soon.

  13. One step in the right direction, and I'm confident that more will follow. It's good to hear that kidney function and white cell counts are all heading in the right direction. Best wishes to you both
