Some good news
Sunday, February 07, 2016
Today the oncologist said Ashley's white cells are now up to 2.2 and his platelets have come up from 15 to 130 so that is good. They will not give him another shot in his stomach to help increase white cells cause it puts strain on his heart. They only let him have his Eliquis (blood thinner). His heart rate is down to average 80 to 100 and even going down into 70's sometime so that is good. The cardiologist came today and tomorrow Ashley will have a stress test and echo test. They are consulting a lung doc and he is to come tomorrow (I think). There is the most wait--someone is coming. No talk or hint of coming home. Oh, he hand and foot are not as swollen and he has cellulitis but will find just what tomorrow--blood culture takes 3 days.
Thanks for all the prayers. I know they are working cause he is so much better today. His had has wrinkles mow and yesterday there were none. His foot is not as big and the ankle is back to size of other ankle. He is retaining fluid so cardiologist is trying to find a water pill that does not have sulfa--Ashley is allergic to sulfa.
Will update tomorrow hopefully. I love all of ya'll.
