Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers of the world!!!
Val had a special day with Fullerman in the hospital room with her all day. The chest tube was removed, and Val has no sign of infection. Val was able to take two good walks with her oxygen, but without it the oxgen levels are drifting down into the low 80's. She was busy with visitors all day which distracts her from the pain. Dad, Baine and Denise were there until mid afternoon along with Rudy and Lea during the middle of the day too. In the evening, Alison was there with Laura. Val used prunes and miralax to get a bowel movement. Medically, there is no reason for her to be there any more. We are hoping for discharge from the hospital today if they can arrange for home oxygen.
The plan will be to have the home health nurse come on Wednesday like she always does to do the CBC and all her blood levels. Chemo is scheduled for this Friday May 15 at Dr Eltabbhk"s office. They will use a different chemo drug therapy as Val's tumors in the lungs have not responded to the first drug of choice.
Love and Prayers to Val always...Salynn
