Here's what little man looks like tonight:
and if you can't tell, he has a mondo bruise. He's been having some d-sat issues probably bc of the anesthesia. His hgb dropped 1 gram, but the resident told us that is normal w/ a procedure like that, so we don't have any reason to think he's still bleeding MLT wise right now. Poops are yellow, but steroids are higher, so that's part of the reason. We don't want to stay on those steroids at the dose he's at. It's still lower than the dose he USED to be on, but it's higher than what we would like for him to be on.
Doctor says after 48 hrs of having the port, if he is still doing well/stable, we should be able to go home again.
Good thing, bc apparently they are doing away w/ meal vouchers in this joint, and if i'm going to be paying good money for supper, or lunch, or even breakfast, i am going to be less than thrilled eating all of this cafeteria food. With a voucher, the cost is somewhat diffused, so it isn't too bad eating here. But I can go somewhere else for the same price or less if they aren't going to give out vouchers anymore. Boo for that.
Keep Ridge in those prayers!
