Transplant Day 7

Today is another mixed day for Doc. His feet seem to be doing a little better, but his throat and hands are still bad. He has started running a low grade temperature today as well. We know this happens every time he has been through the chemo, it is just hard watching him go through it. The nurses say he is a real trooper. They can't believe that he isn't complaining with everything he is going through, they say he obviously has good reasons to complain. I think that has a lot to do with the fact he knows that God is in control. They had to give him more platelets again today, but they have come up nicely by this evening. The one strange thing that I haven't mentioned on the blog yet is that he has the hiccups. He has had them off and on now for three days. The nurses tell me that 10% of their patients on this floor get them. They are not sure why. At least that is something that is only annoying and not painful.

I am sorry I didn't get to publish this post last night. I was working on it and was kicked off the Internet a few times like usual, but the last time I was kicked off I couldn't get back on. By the time I realized I wasn't going to get back on Kim was already in bed so I couldn't reach her. I kept checking it until after midnight, but it never came back on. I think the hospital must have shut it down this time.

During the night Doc's temp went up to 102.2. It came back down-Praise the Lord!-and as of the time I am writing this it was 99.8. Please continue to keep him in your prayers as he goes through these trials. We know that God is his healer we just need to be patient and let Him do it in His time.
