LAST WEEK AT CLINIC..............

Monday, April 10, 2017

The first night we were in Cleveland last week, we had a couple thunder storms, the next night we got over 8" of snow !
Last Thurs. at the Clinic John had lab work done, then saw the nurse practioner. His Hemoglobin was down some again. His chest xray didn't show an increase in the fluid. She did want him to have another thorancentisis on Fri. (next day) She said they would call with the time. I told her make it while were up here because it's just too much back & forth. We have to make arrangements with John's sister to stay there & also for our Son to take care of Spirit (our kitty) There isn't anybody else. Not to mention gas & every time we go tot he Clinic we have to pay $10.00 to park. Last week we pd. the first time, then started home & got the call to come back, it cost us another $10.00 ! I just think it's wrong !!!
Ok, we got the appt. for Fri. at 11 AM. OMG !!! Then when I saw all the snow coming down that night, Oh boy. Lucky they are really great about clearing the roads in that area ! They were perfectly clear all the way to the Clinic & the closer to the Clinic we got, the less snow they had ! They got another 2 Liters out of John's lung. They want him to see a pulmonary specialist. He may end up having one of those catheters put in that I could drain for him at home. So we went home after that. He was so tired . Sun. he was really weak !!! Had me worried ! Today he seems a lot better.
I called today to see if they wanted him to have a chest xray before we leave here tomorrow. He has an appt. for his 2'nd. Infusion Weds. Nurse said she was going to see if they could get him an appt. with the Pulmonary Dr. She did for 9 AM Weds., before his infusion. I know I'm going to be on pins & needles again. John isn't much better !
It seems like we just got back, & already going again.
I just hope we hear something good, anything, I don't care how little.
It seems like we just got home & were going back already!
On to the next adventure.
I'll keep you posted.
Love ya', Flutterfli emoticon

    Prayers to your DH and to you as well. That is a long trip to do so many times! While you were fighting the snow we were fighting the high temps trying to pack the camper. Then in Big Bend National Park it was as hot as Death Valley!! And no humidity either. Now we are up in the mountains and temps are more normal but still not in an area for possible snow, just storms!

    Take care and keep the positive going. emoticon emoticon
