More News on Hospital update

So much to tell. Sunday night my husband got super sick, throwing up both ways all night long. He could not keep water or anything down. I brought him into the urgent care in the am, he was dehydrated. They gave him a pain shot & nausea shot, since he was not able to take his pain meds for his recovery from his surgery. He ended up in the emergency at the hospital & in ICU for two days & regular room for two days. He just got back home.

Our daughter, ended up with the same thing on Tuesday - the Dr's then realized that my husbands problem, was not all related to the surgery. Our 8yr old was terribly sick for two days, had to have IV fluids and lots of tests yesterday. She went back for tests today, but she is finally feeling better and slept thru the night. She has graduated from a full clear liquid diet to the BRAT diet. ( BRAT = Bananas, Rice, Applesauce and Toast). Mainly she is eating toast and Popsicles, but she is holding them in finally.

My mom had her scheduled pet scan, she has approx 12 + tumors from her cancer- she has been fighting a long time. We got some good news, 80% of her tumors are a little smaller, yeh. Maybe her experimental treatment is helping. She is still weak, but not in the hospital, just going for fluids alot, due to her problem holding everything in and not having an appetite.

My dad was moved out of ICU to PCU and just got moved to a regular hospital room late last night, yeh. I hope he keeps getting better.

I am exhausted.
