Monday update

Well, I THINK all the tests have been run. Today was a lung biopsy and a bone marrow. Both extremely painful.

Spinal tap came back no minny gitis.

Prelim blood results came back no CMV, but we will have to wait for positive NO from bone marrow test.

He is going crazy because he does not feel sick, even though the tests say he should be in bed. He has lived this way so very long that this is the norm. One nurse told him she didn't know how he was doing so good because if she had all that he she would be in a ball crying.

Today he is still steady. It is weird, he went to the doc to get back on the meds and then we couldn't leave. Got stuck in a examining room for 8 hours because of all the counts. What should have been high was low, what should have been low was high.

I must admit that it scared the crap outta me. When docs look worried and concerned, it makes me worried and concerned. Yesterday, another ID doctor came in and explained so much stuff to me.

So that is all I have today.

Plus I think the auditor at work is gone. I think. No guarantees though.

Cheers my friends! Thanks so much for the prayers  and well wishes, and thoughts and all the good stuff that you good guyeses do.

I'm so sorry to hear about the painful tests. My husband has carcinoid syndrome, a rare form of cancer, and has had many tests. I hope your hubby will be home soon.

I've been out of town more than at home lately. I didn't know any of the details as to what is going on. That son of yours is one strong hombre. Please give him my regards. Every positive though thought I can muster is flying his way...
I'm sure this is hard on you as well. hang in there.

I'm sure all the tests are horrible and it has got to be stressful. I'm so glad he is back home with you and Winston.

One of the pit falls of not blogging is not finding out things! This is the first I have heard about Micheal being in the hospital again! I am so very sorry! Please tell him I am thinking of him! Thoughts and prayers for you both!
