Kim: On Friday night, March 19, George's daughter Kelci, her husband Jackie and their son Kienan arrived from Olympia, WA. The energy of a twenty month old and five year old playing in the living room was a direct contrast to George trying to recover from two bouts of radiation that day.
We look forward to the weekends since it gives George a chance to recover somewhat from the treatment. But on Sunday afternoon we had to rush him to the hospital. His leg was extremely swollen and he was having trouble breathing. After a phone call to the doctor, we transported George to the hospital and he was admitted for blood clots in the lungs and leg. They decided to keep him in ICU so he could be closely monitored. Subsequently, he underwent some procedures to place a filter in the stomach to catch any clots that break loose and also treatment for the clot in the leg. By Monday night, he was much improved.
We're not sure when he'll be released or when his radiation will continue. We're hoping both occur - since it would mean he's gotten through the scare of the blood clots and we don't want to add any weeks onto the schedule of radiation.
It is great to have Kelci and Jackie here. They've been a big help with Kaci and we've been able to have someone with George and still keep her on her schedule.
Thanks for all your continued prayers and thoughts.
