NO CHEMO

Hey guys,

I wanted to let you guys know that Luis will not be having chemo tomorrow.

Playing Video Games While Waiting
When we visited the E.R. on Tuesday for the biliary tube issue, they took some blood work from him as usual.

Before we left the hospital, they gave him a prescription for antibiotics just in case of an infection.

A different kind of blood work called culture was also taken but the results hadn't come back yet- until today.

It showed an organism bacteria was found in the blood- and Dr. Vashi wants him on a 10 day antibiotic via IV.

A company called Coram will  be coming out to our house tomorrow to connect a pump that will infuse the medicine over an hour. We will also be trained on how to connect and disconnect the pump for the remainder 9 days.
 
They'll be no chemo tomorrow and his dr wants a follow up a few days from now. She wants to make sure he's properly covered with antibiotic before giving him chemo again.

It's amazing how things happen sometimes. We were just chatting this morning about (believe it or not) wishing there was no chemo tomorrow.

His leg can use a little more recovery time and he had BIG plans to enjoy the super bowl with family. Well, his prayer was heard.     

We look at what just happened as another counted blessing- and not as a down fall. We believe God is guiding the doctors on every decision they make with regards to his treatments. And everything is going as planned.

"The great secret to happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles." :o)

Until next time........have a peaceful and blessed night.
