Well, Donnie’s arm wasn’t any better today so he called and made an appointment with his oncologist here. He was supposed to leave for Houston this afternoon for chemo tomorrow. Dr Castine told him to call and reschedule. He said if he drives over there that they won’t do his chemo with this infection that he has. He had an ultrasound done on his arm to see if there was blood clots. (this type of infection causes the blood to clot) there was some clotting but not in the main artery. He gave him another antibiotic to take with the bactrim he is taking now and gave him a shot and sent him home with the shots to take for 4 days. (he doesn’t think he will be able to give him self a shot in the stomach so we will have someone come and do it for him.)
He will then have to take 325mg of aspirin every day for the next 3 weeks once he is done with his shots.
I am hoping and praying he will be able to get his chemo next week. Last time it got delayed his tumor grew.
That is all I know for now. I will update later when I know more. love to all
