Robbie had appointments at MD Anderson today. It is nice to be only 2 miles away now! He started with bloodwork, which he has had done dozens of times without problems, but today after they were done, he kept fainting. They got so excited they rushed him to the ER to get checked out. Nothing beyond low blood pressure and low blood counts, which we knew already.
Then he went to a new doctor that specializes in bone marrow problems. He didn’t find anything significant in his bone marrow biopsy and he thinks all the problems are due to the heavy chemo he has taken. They were worried about other cancers or disorders. We will follow up when he finishes treatment and they will come up with a plan of what to do.
Ruth, Nick, and Lynn took off to return to Tulsa today. It is hard to know that we will be apart for awhile. I’m sure they will travel down again. It is just not the same as being less than 2 hours away.
