Retro Post

I don't know where to begin.

Jim has been seen by his primary care physician, his oncologist, a surgeon, and his cardiologist. He has had 3 cat scans and an MRI. Today after the MRI all doctors agreed...It is not his heart (he had quintuple by-pass in 2003), the lymphoma has been ruled out. They concur that he has suffered some kind of trauma that caused the bleeding in his spleen. Because he is on Lovenox shots (a blood thinner) even a mild trauma could have caused the bleeding to begin. He will be taken off the Lovenox shots for about 8 weeks. It will take about that long for his spleen to be cleared up. Then they will do another cat scan to see how things look. He is still in quite a bit of pain. Until yesterday he was on a morphine pump. Today they have him on pain pills.

If all goes well he may get to come home tomorrow or Friday.

I probably will never meet any of you but I will never forget the feeling of love that you have sent our way. May God Bless each of you. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
