Resting & healing

Yesterday a single room became available on the actual Haematology/Oncology ward so Cam was able to be moved. We feel happy about this as these ward staff are more familiar with Cam’s condition and what is required (eg sterile drinking water, low bacterial diet etc). The nurses have been fantastic and Cam’s specialist has visited him every day- so we feel very confident in the care he is getting. We’ve bumped into a number of nurses who I’ve worked with in the past, so its been good to have some familiar faces caring for us too.

Cam’s blood counts have dropped further so he was given an infusion of platelets yesterday. He was also due to have a blood transfusion but they weren’t able to give it as his temperature was too high. However this morning his temp has dropped for the first time so he should be able to have the transfusion today. Cam has had more samples taken (blood, sputum) for testing. The results of the original samples should be back tomorrow, and then the antibiotics can be adjusted, if needed, to more specifically target the source of infection.

Cam continues to feel quite tired. As he put it yesterday ‘staring at the blank hosp room wall is enough stimulation for his mind at the moment’. Despite this we’ve still organised to have the TV connected, more for my benefit and so I can watch the final of ‘So you think you can dance’ tomorrow (go Jack!). Oh, for the simple things in life…..

what a blessing the hospital has been at this stage, and thank God for the single room that he now has. Rest is good, so thats good that he is able to sleep some of this time through. Hope you are looking after yourself too liz, because you are doing it tough too. Still praying, but i think i will up the ante on the prayer now and pray more. And i think we can safely assume jack will win!

Ditto on you looking after youself Liz, can’t have you both in hospital.You need to make sure you rest as much as you can. In all this you can see how God has gone before you, preparing the way for the hospital, that card could bring a heffty sum.I hope Cam will recover quickly and be home again soon.
Love and Blessings to you both
