Daily Update: Monday 06/02/2014 (8:50 am)


We woke up around 7 to get our day started.  Blood labs are taken around 4 am.  This morning, his blood level was still a bit low, so they will be giving Marty a unit of blood. His platelet count was at 1,000 (normal is 150,000), so he will be getting a unit of platelets.  They just started to give him the platelets and they are going to have them go in over 3 hours.  Normally, they have them go in quicker than that, but they decided to have them go in slow to see if they stay around longer.  He is doing great and is in good spirits.  We are hoping to have results on all the tests back today or tomorrow.  Once they are back he will begin treatments. 

He is eating really well here.  The food is outstanding.  He has lost 23 pounds so far, but treatments haven't started yet.  I imagine he will lose more once they do.  Leukemia certainly isn't the best way to lose unwanted weight. 

Still waiting to see the doctor today and I will update again when we have more information.
