Quick update

Quick update because I'm freaking tired.
Just got home from the hospital. Dad is looking and feeling good but nothing has been done yet. They are giving him a couple pints of the red stuff because his white cells are low and his red cells are high or something like that. They say its because of the chemo and that is what is causing the back pan. They have him scheduled for a cat scan...could be today or could be tomorrow but he is on the list. Also someone else is comming in (who knows when) to look at his throat and run some tests and see if there is anything blocking his throat that food might get stuck. The cancer Dr was in and said he will be staying for a few more days so they can watch his blood cell count and do what they have to till they can get it corrected.

Robert, Kim, and Glenn were in this morning and if laughter is the best medicine we can thank Robert because he had all of us including dad laughing our asses off. Most of dad's sisters if not all will be going in to see dad later today from what I heard.

Thats all for now because it's nap time.

Hi all.it's 8:30 pm I just got back from a visit with Papa. He is in good spirits. Slept for the first little bit then up and chatty.
I had to leave at 8 due to visiting hours being over.

I made sure he was nice and comfy in his bed before i left (well as comfy as a hospital bed can be)

His night nurse is VERY nice. She will be giving him some gravol via IV (his tummy is a little queazy)

I will be back in tomorrow with my mom for a visit.
