Andy had a bad day today. He was not happy. He is still in a lot of pain, and I’m sure day by day it’s hard to stay positive. He has some weird symptoms right now and they are trying to figure out what is going on in his body. He isn’t using all his lung capacity, so that could produce a fever, but also last night his blood pressure dropped to 80 something over 60 something-really really low! and he was looking like he was going into shock, but didn’t. Today his left arm is swollen a lot. So, today they did doppler on his arm(they can see inside the blood vessels) and they found 2 blood clots. They upped his dosage of blood thinner to as high as they could, but they need to talk to the surgeons to get cleared for full dosage of blood thinners. I’m sure they will ask tomorrow when the Dr.’s are back in.
They also did a CT scan on his lungs and abdomen. I’m not exactly sure what they are looking for, just abnormalities. The nurse reassured me that this can be normal, and they figure out what’s happening pretty fast. I’m worried. I keep thinking ‘he can’t survive a fall 75 feet just to die of a blood clot can he?’ but I know deep down that the Lord saved him from that fall, and I will have faith that he won’t let him die in the hospital. It must have not been his time, and I’m going to have faith that 13 days later still isn’t his time.
He was pretty sleepy and calm today. He wasn’t asking me to move him around every 10 seconds. I feel bad-he looks like he is getting depressed. I probably would if I were him! Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.
Alex starts Kindergarten on Wednesday and tonight my mom took us out and bought both the older boys cute backpacks. Little kid backpacks. One of my pet peeves is when I see an itty bitty kindergartener with a backpack that is bigger than they are! She bought them both a new shirt too. We already have plenty of pants, so we didn’t need that. He got a few school supplies. He is super excited to go to school.
