At The ER. 7/17/17


Noon:

We arrived at the ER around noon today.  He is nauseated, dehydrated, and very weak.  He is having some shortness of breath too. Basically feeling all over miserable. He was very pale when we arrived. The sarcoma center told us to bring him to the ER. 

They did blood work and they gave him IV fluids and IV nausea meds. The also did a CT scan of his chest due to his shortness of breath. 

Robbie has severe nausea from the last round of chemo that we haven’t been able to control even with multiple nausea medications.

8:15 PM

 CT is clear except the tumors that we already knew about. Not sure why he is feeling short of breath.  He will be able to go home in the next 20 mins. Has more nausea meds to take. We are waiting on a nurse to disconnect him and release us. 

Long day!

9:30pm We are still at the ER and he is feeling sick again

11:15 Finally back to our apartment!

Jim’s sister Anne is here from Wisconsin until Wednesday and she also happens to be a nurse, which is great. I wish she could stay longer.
