And still here...

Mark has been very tired this morning. He received a platelet transfusion yesterday afternoon, but his platelet count is still only 50. They will continue to watch it overnight.

His hemoglobin fell, so he'll have a transfusion for that either tonight or tomorrow morning. Otherwise he's been ok. Yesterday he was up until around 4pm, even making it to the chair to play a couple of hands of cards, then he got tired and slept. His legs started bothering him again around 9 and he was having trouble getting back to sleep. A melatonin did the trick finally, but in the meantime he was pretty miserable.

Right now we're watching Planes. He was playing Wii a little bit ago. His energy level is still low. We're so thankful for the tpn, though, because he still hasn't been able to eat anything.

The man who brings room service just left. He knows Mark and I both by name at this point, as does the housekeeper. He said see you tomorrow as he left. And so he shall.


  1. You guys have been on my mind all day.
