Another Day Done (Almost)

We’re coming to the close of another day and we are tired. Last night we got very little sleep again….lots of interruptions throughout the night. This morning Greg ate some fruit for breakfast, which is good; he usually doesn’t want to eat anything. He got a little work done and then rested some more. The doctor came by and said that Greg’s hemoglobin had dropped to 8.4 and that he would get a transfusion today…..it’s just now finishing up. I guess his calcium was a little low because they also gave him a calcium infusion. Someone from cardiology also stopped by to check on him. They are thinking about starting him on a medication that will help with the contraction of the heart. They will observe this weekend and make the decision on Monday. Greg has been pretty tired and weak most of the day today and done a lot of dozing on and off. He has also had several periods of nausea. He had a milkshake this evening, but didn’t want anything else. He did get up and walk several laps around the unit, which is always a good thing. He still has two more chemo drugs to get tonight and then day 3 will officially be complete! On to day 4……

Trusting His Plan,
Greg, Sandra, Katie, Emilie and Jacob
