Hi, we're home!

Hi!  Just wanted to let you all know that John and I are home.  We went to his appointment yesterday in Hershey at his transplant center.  There were a few things wrong with him, but fortunately his fever had come down.  So we did not have to stay overnight.  But he was very low on red blood cells.  So they put him in the hospital for the day and gave him two bags of red blood cells.  It took all day and we got home about eleven at night.  But at least we got home last night!  Yay!  John was feeling weak before the cells but is feeling extremely better now that he has gotten the blood.  They gave him an appointment to come back in three weeks.  Meanwhile, he has to get his blood drawn three times a week locally, and I guess they will transfuse him locally again if he needs it. 

Oh sheesh, I just talked to John, he took his temp this morning a little while ago and his temp was 102.2.  That's high for a bone marrow transplant patient.  I hope we don't have to go back to Hershey.  Stay tuned...

  7. Good to hear that things were more or less OK on check-up, except the red cell count. 102.2 is high for anyone, certainly for someone in John's condition. Echo hopes that this is temporary.

  23. It is good that John's condition shows improvement along with the intermittent fever.     I saw my doctor today as I have been having severe pain in my left hip.   I asked him if the area I pointed to as being extremely painful would indicate the hip socket and he said no and that it is probably bursitis.     That is a relief even though the pain is awful.      I rested this afternoon and then around 4:30 pm worked on my addition construction a little.     I am just on the computer a little each day and am trying to visit journals and get the number of emails/alerts down from 400 the other day.     Wishing you both the best and I think John will continue to show improvement.        mark
