hi teri, i dont seem to come on the site much now dad is home but glad to see your keeping us all updated with bert. My dad has finished all his chemo and is out of hospital. or so we thought, seems he has to have chemo tablets as maintainence therapy for 6 months and they are making him very ill. He said his skin feels like its burning his eyes are sore and like bert cant hardly walk anywhere and aches all over. His still also very weak and very frustrated, seems like a long slog before they return to normal. I hope berts bronchitis and c diff get better soon as if he hasnt been through enough. Does bert have to take any more tablets at all as we thought it would be all over now? shelley. x
Hi just to let everyone know things are still much the same as they have been, C diff seems to have settled but not stopped although I think the infection has gone but he still has diarrhoea several times a day. Bronchitis , he has been given an inhaler to try and settle that. he ihas been quite down for a couple of days but hopefully that will pass . I suspect he is frustrated at not being able to do much. He is still very weak and still staggers about like a drunk man.
Nothing muce else to report
Bert had his Bone Marrow Biopsy done on Thursday so all fingers and toes crossed. 3 weeks for results
Better blood results this week so things are looking up apart from the C Diff and Bronchitis no change.
Bert is still quite weak and tired and cannot understand why!!!
Next appointment on Thursday.
Sorry to see that Bert has been having such a rough time...no wonder he is feeling so weak and tired as he really has been taking quite a battering recently. Glad to hear that his blood results have picked up though.
Sending you lots of love and warm wishes...and heres hoping that Bert can shake off the Bronchitis and C Diff soon and begin to feel better xxx
