AIHA and Chemo

... not a happy combo. Dave's been up, down, and all around since my last post. At the moment, he's feeling pretty miserable. His mouth is full of ulcers (probably from the chemo,) he's having stomach/abdominal distress (of unknown origin,) he's having tremors and cramps (electrolyte imbalance, due to multiple issues) and he's weak & breathless. I'm guessing his Hematocrit is lower than it's ever been (the lowest so far was 18.)

I took him to the hospital for a blood draw this morning, and we left a message for the doc this afternoon, but we haven't heard anything yet. We're both assuming he'll get another transfusion tomorrow, but we're still waiting for the word . . .
