Thursday Update

Karl is VERY uncomfortable today. He's hallucinating a lot- the nurse said he was talking about Anika and day care. :-)We haven't been very successful in keeping his fever down below 100. So he's achey and just can't seem to get any rest. The worst for me is the moaning all the time and having to replace his oxygen (nose). His primary physician wants to put a mask on his but I don't know if that's going to help at all.
I am hoping he will be better by 3:30 when I bring Anika by for a visit, he seems to be calming down a bit.
The dietician came in to drop off some Ensure- WHATEVER this happens every friggen time, it's like the pharmaceutical reps have them on the payroll! His health is fine and all his initial labs came back really good. Plus Karl hates the stuff and we have better recommend nutritional supplements at home.
Anika's visit this afternoon was ok. His nurse gave him an early dose of demerol as he's getting more IL2 right now. He was sleepy, Anika was happy to see him but a little scared. We talked after and I told her that we woke him during nap and she doesn't like it when she gets woken up. She gave him a big hug and kiss and was off to home with Grammy. Karl is still pretty out of it and uncomfortable, Dr Wyzinski hasn't stopped in yet today so I don't know if he's going home tomorrow or Sat. I don't know if he's going to hold out for another day- very anxious to feel better and not be so icky. Plus he's starting to get grumpy about everything...
