Well David had his PICC kind inserted early Tuesday morning and every afternoon since they have had to redress it because he keeps bleeding. I'm not talking about a trickle here a trickle there but soaking through the dressing and his shirt. Today the chemo ONC came in and said if they can't get the bleeding to stop this weekend they are going to remove it Monday and put one in his left arm. Of course David wanted this so he would be poked less. He is not happy about it at all. The other thing is they are watching his anemia because there is the possibility he will need a transfusion. I think that really scared him. For me I think it would make him feel a lot better. After seeing his crappy blood work it couldn't hurt. So now he is determined to stop bleeding so he doesn't have to worry about transfusions and yanking PICCs. Today was the first time I could see him want to fight and it was nice. Of course he still is totally wore out, but that brief time where I saw him being my David was what I needed. Oh and today his was well enough to realize I have hurt my back and hand and he was a little worried about me. That was a good sign too.
