Transplant Day 10

I waited tonight until the labs came back to start the blog. God decided we need to wait a day or two until we find out if the transplant took or not. His counts are still at zero. I guess we will have to continue to be that "patient" patient.

Doc had a pretty good day today, at least after he finally got platelets. Let me explain that. Last night Doc's platelet count was down to 11. The doctors decided this time to not let them get below 20, because Doc has had trouble with some bleeding. The nurses called for platelets for him last night, but both hospitals were completely out. They had to call the Red Cross. The Red Cross didn't bring any until this morning which wouldn't have been so bad except Doc kept bleeding from his mouth all night long. I was worried about him, but a while after they got the platelets in him that stopped. He is still having trouble swallowing, but his mouth was a little better today. The nurse had to peel a lot of the dead skin off of his hands and feet today again, but they are starting to look a lot better. It will still be a while before Doc will be able to type again. His temperature is still normal which is a blessing. During his previous stays this is the time that he had the high temperatures. I am very thankful to God for his healing hand. Thank you for your continued prayers. I will continue to keep you updated on his progress.
