Discharge Date Set

by Shannon on July 23, 2008

Whoo-hoo!  Doctors have said that if all goes well this week, they will discharge Adam next Wednesday, July 30th! 

They will be squeezing in a variety of tests and procedures between now and then.  His counts are still on the low side so they will be watching those more closely over the next few days.  They are working to schedule an MRI before discharge.   With the MRI they will be looking for any signs of active cancer or changes from the MRI he had at the end of May.  They are also trying to schedule the procedure to remove Adam’s port (the line where all medications have been administered).  Doctors weren’t particularly worried about removing that before discharge, but Adam is adamant that it be removed before he comes home- it’s uncomfortable and has to be flushed several times each day which he doesn’t enjoy.

Aside from his counts being a little low, everything else looks good right now.  Adam’s taste buds are about 95% back which makes eating much easier.  He is beginning to gain back a little bit of the weight he lost and his physical therapy is going well.

I’ll try to post more frequently in the next week as procedures are completed and test results come in.
