Val was not in a good way this morning. Her two vicoden and one ativan was not touching her pain this morning and she was not eating. By lunch she was a little more comfortable and ate some sorbet. Dinner she was back to her Campbell's tomato soup. Lea had made some small pancake like things that Val had requested, but they were "too heavy" and Val sent them home with Lea. Rudy went out and bought 14 pints of strawberry sorbet that Dad hadn't found. It might be a little excessive in the amount of pints, but the gesture was out of pure love for his daughter whom he thought was eating a pint a day. She barely eats anything these days though.
Val's platelets were 80, 000 yesterday, but they went down to 60, 000 today. We learned that Val won't be ready for a platelet transfusion until her platelets are down to 10,000. She does have to bring her coumadin from 3.5 down to 2.5 due to this platelet level.
Love and prayers to Val always......Salynn
