It's been a rough week for Jayme, but we think things will start to improve. He is currently in Shawnee Mission Medical Center and should be home sometime tomorrow. Last night he was having abdominal pain, nausea, and had not had much to eat or drink over the past several days. I took him to the ER and they admitted him. Turns out his white blood count was severely low, he was dehydrated and had a bowel obstruction. He has been given lots of IV fluids and antibiotics and is feeling better. His nausea has decreased and his appetite improved. They've had him in isolation due to the low white count, which is common in chemo patients. He tried to persuade the staff to let him recover at home since "the worst place to be if you don't want to get sick is the hospital"! He lost that argument.
He is not up to visitors, but loves the emails, texts and cards. He thanks everyone for their love and concern. And so do I.
