The Ordeal Continues - Day 12

Steven showed a lot of confusion last night. He was so unsteady on his feet that they put him on bed alert. Which means an alarm goes off at the nurses station if he tries to get out of bed and four or five people come running. The nurses said if this continues, they will try to move him to a room closer to the station.

The mouth sores are so bad that we can no longer understand his speech on the phone (nor in the room last night). The more miserable aspects of chemo, vomiting and intestinal, have started up, too. I went with my cousin Wendy who came up from Austin to see Steven. He couldn't keep his eyes open.

Better news is that the fever has not gotten higher than the low 100s and last night it was normal. Dr. Agura came to see him yesterday for the first time since he's been in the hospital. Steven did tell us that but couldn't tell us what he said.

Lisa will be visiting tonight and will give us an update.

I sent Steven a text message to his phone. I hope he can see it. Just wanted him to know that I am thinking about him.
