paul

well pauls in hospital again, he had some real high temperatures over the weekend, started with a lot of pain friday morning, then come the evening 38.6 . he wouldnt go to the hospital friday night, but yesterday am we saw the chemo nurses and he had no choice as could have been a life threatening infection, fortunately its not, but they still dont know 100% where the infection is, they think its in the liver and the cancer is causing it. they are going to do an echo on his heart today to double check no infection there or piece of clot from his arm, this is just a precautionle check as his plateletes are low and with the temperatures his heart beat is a bit irratic. hopefully i can bring him home later today.

i just feel so tired at the moment, having spent the whole of yesterday in the hospital gets a bit draining.
chemo on hold till 7/9 but not sure if hes going to continue this course or not yet, when he wasnt on any he felt heaps better, and quality is what counts now. he does have a ct scan booked for end of september, and think he will decide then.
