Wayne was discharged from the hospital yesterday evening. He has to go back each day to get antibiotics intravenously until his count returns to normal.
I haven’t mentioned our change of plans, yet. We are back in Denver. Unpacking (which makes me very crabby!) all the boxes … of the entire house that I just packed up …
Wayne’s meeting with Dr. Patel was eye-opening. Wayne will remain on Ifosfamide, even after his chemo cocktail changes, because it is the best drug to fight his sarcoma. It is also the same drug that cannot be administered in Rapid City. The back and forth travel from Rapid to Houston has worn Wayne out. It doesn’t make any sense for Wayne’s sake, or our budget, to stay in Houston when we have a home in Denver that is just down the street from a hospital that can care for Wayne.
So, to recap, he will continue to go to Houston for scans and consults with Dr. Patel, but all treatment will be done here in Denver.
All of this change and stress has me eating lots of brownies. Wayne doesn’t eat much and is down 70 pounds. He obviously is leaving the brownie eating to me. Thanks, babe.
Off to unpack. And eat more brownies.
