Update

Sep 14, 2012 - 1 comments

It's been awhile since I've been on here to update about Abel's condition. He has a nasty infection in his left arm along with blood clots in both arms now. On 9/10, he got a full body CT scan done and next Monday (9/17), he gets a full blood panel and we will find out if he is cancer free or not. *crosses fingers* He is now on 140mg of Lovenox shots for the next 6 weeks, Prilosec until further notice, and just finished Bactrim.

The last day

Today is the last day of chemo...unless his Oncologist says otherwise on Monday...

Chemo Cycle 3, Day # 4

Bad, bad nausea today...to the point that he almost didn't make it out of the parking garage without losing his breakfast. He was given a nice concoction of Ativan, Aloxi, and Zantac. Now he's passed out...lol

Lovenox injection



The results from the Doplar showed that Abel has bloodclots in his arm, which is a condition called Superficial thrombophlebitis. It commonly occurs in patients being treated for testicular cancer for some unknown reason. So for the next 6 weeks, I inject him in the belly with Lovenox. He got his first shot yesterday. My MA schooling has really been coming in handy lately.
