Headed Home

Headed Home PostThere were a few bumps in the road, but we are going home today. Shane is doing well with the treatment and hasn’t had any side effects. His port needle did become dislodged, which led him to cry most of Wednesday night. We didn’t discover the problemuntil Thursday morning when his IV fluids started leaking all over him. He was de-accessed, allowing the swelling to go down and then re-accessed. Poor guy knows what the numbing cream and tape means now. He’s no dummy. His numbers didn’t look great yesterday, so he got his blood redrawn. Before we leave, he needs a transfusion. Better now than later. In the meantime, he will be quarantined for the weekend until his numbers go up and he can fight infections again. I’m half joking, half not. I’d rather be safe than sorry.
