continued for last Blog ...........

The test for the CA in the fluid came back negative !!! YES !!! Thank you Lord ! They continued to do Blood work every day, he had Heparin Shots one every shift. ( to prevent blood clots) He did have a ultrsound on his legs to check for blood clots - negative, they continued blood work everyday, xrays almost everyday, had another draining the fluid of the lung on Weds., which was checked for an infection - negative. They even xrayed his chest before we left the Clinic on Thurs. We were both so exhausted, hardly no sleep with them coming in constantly every night to do vitals, blood work etc. I had gone 5 days without a shower, no cloths with me or any thing else !!! That will teach me ! We've always packed bags to take with us when we've gone to the clinic, just in case, well the first time we don't he gets admitted !!! UGH !!! Our son & my SIL, ended up meeting 1/2 between home & the Clinic and he sent me a bag of stuff I'd need. I took a shower that night & it felt like heaven !!! Ahhhhhhh.............. Clean clothes !!! ; } I took another shower the night before we came home too !!! ; }
They did a second Thorancentisis on Weds., got another 2 Litters of blooy fluid. Which was tested for infection- negative ! I got to be there & watched the whole thing. Interesting ! I'd seen them done yrs. ago, but don't remember them. John really felt a lot better & breathing improved greatly !!!
John is feeling pretty good, but his mood isn't ! I just feel so helpless & useless, I don't know what to do for him. I just wish I could make this all go away !!! ; {
We go back up to Cleveland tomorrow, for early appts. Thursday. We'll be staying overnight at his Sisters. We have to leave early cause he has to get a chest xray tomorrow before we leave for the Clinic. There's a place about 5-10 min. from us, we go right by that is apart of the Clinic.
On top of all this, a good friend of ours, husband just died, he had been fighting Cancer for several years !!! We can't even go to the calling hours or Funeral cause we'll be in Cleveland !!! I feel so bad ! She understands though. It's so sad ! Cancer is such a horrible disease !!! It breaks my heart every time I find out somebody else we know - one way or another, has it !!!
Were praying that Thurs. we get some good news
Thanks for all the prayers etc. ; }
Take care, keep safe & God Bless ! & KEEP SPARKLING !!!
Love ya', Flutterfli emoticon
