It looks like we have a blood clot that formed on his right arm near his picc line. They started giving him lovenox, a blood thinner, to treat it. Unfortunately this is a shot administered at the stomach. He will have one shot every 12 hours for minimum of 6 weeks. To make matters worse he will have to have a platelet count of >50 to be able to get the blood thinner. So this means he will be getting a blood transfusion nearly every time as well.
Chemo has been taking a toll on him recently. Lots of sleeping and random aches. He’s off the steroids now, and has lost about 7 pounds from his heaviest. This weekend hasn’t been that great but it must get better soon.
Our next biopsy is coming up on Wednesday. We will look for some good news then.
Correction: he is only receiving a spinal tap Wednesday not biopsy.
