Honestly.. just when I think I have a plan to refocus.. my world is turned upside down.
Not more than 30 minutes after I wrote my post this morning.. I received horrible news.
My husband was an emergency admit to the hospital.
I was at work and got the call.
He had gone to the oncologist office (after being away for two weeks) I knew this alone was not good.
And I think you all saw my earlier post..
But today.. his WBC was 1, his HgB was 5 and platelet's were 9...
For those of you who don't know what that means.. it means not good.. dangerously not good.
For the last two weeks my DH has had tremendous confusion..
Bottom line he urgently needed a blood transfusion and they feared a brain bleed or brain lesion .
So I spent most of my day and evening at the hospital.
They are in the process of administrating two back to back blood transfusions (this takes about 6 hours), and they did the MRI on the brain at 6:00.. we wont have a full report until the doctor gets the radiologist report.
The fear here is that low platelets alone (and these are really really low numbers) can cause the brain bleed...
I am numb.. I have no other words.. Here is my sweet heart. now in the oncology wing.. the nurse has the first bag of blood for the transfusion.. he is so out of it.. He lost 14 lbs in two weeks..
