Kevin is still the eternal optimist and yesterday I was as well. We waited all day for him to "turn the corner", but he never did. His guts and kidneys aren't working as they should yet and his lungs are still a problem. He received 2 units of platlets last night and 2 units of blood this morning. He is weak, short of breath, and still retaining fluid. His creatinine is high, which is not good and could present problems for his kidneys. We hope for a better outcome today. Leslie, Kevin's sister is with him now. She, being a physicians assistant, will be my eyes and ears while I am home for a few days. She said her job is to make sure the nurses don't fall behind in his care. With the exception of yesterday (during the day) he has had great nurses.
I just arrived home, wrote this blog and am leaving now to attend Caitlin's piano recital. I'm utterly exhausted, but am holding on.
