Today was hubby's first appointment back at Freo. The drive was pretty good and we got there early - an hour early! I dropped him off (after calling the HitH staff to meet him with a wheelchair) and then went off car-park hunting ... the nearest was 4 blocks away - well, I guess I do need the exercise.
Luckily the Dr was there so they took him in early and changed out the antibiotics etc. The Dr also had the test results of some blood they took yesterday and his kidneys and liver are doing okay; the slight anemia he had is getting less AND his infection markers are down to 14. This is great news. When he was first admitted his infection markers were at 170 - apparently if they are 200 or more they give you a blood transfusion. We're aiming for a level of 5 over the next couple of weeks.
He has two appointments next Friday. The first with the Osteo clinic (the apt is for 8.30am, "no they can't change it, but if you get there before 11am you'll still be seen" - I'm taking a book for this one!) and the second is with the Infectious Diseases Department again.
The Dr has also recommended he drop the amount of Oxycontin he's taking (by a third), so we'll see how his pain goes on that.
