Paul will be discharged from St. Luke's Hospital today. His temperature has been normal since Friday, he is still a little bit chesty but it is getting better, and he has come to the end now of both the antibiotic and the antiviral medication. Doctors, nurses and indeed myself are agreed that the best place to recover from now on is home.
I asked about this medication to boost his immune cells. They said they wouldn't give that to him because, so far, the white blood cells are fine. Well, I personally wonder then how he got an infection in the first place... But, anyhow, I will keep an eye on it.
Confusion is mostly gone. Yesterday his oncologist said that this and the sleepiness could be due to the compromised liver. I asked them if they could do some radiation on his liver just for now maybe, but they said that it wasn't possible because his tumors in the liver are not single tumors but more like a net of cancer cells so that you would have to radiate the whole liver almost. So they won't do that but they want Paul back in for Chemo next week.
Certainly scary times. But Paul is a fighter. I said to him yesterday, "You are not leaving me yet. It is far too early." And I think he loved me saying that.
