Today David had the new PICC line installed and it bled since 9:30 this morning. They gave him two platelet transfusions and it just isn't clotting well. Then the gave him a antibodies infusion (his body isn't producing enough). He had a reaction of fever and severe rigors. We finally got past that though. He is set to have chemo tonight, but he really looks very ill. His mom and I don't even know if he should put himself through it. The bone cancer doctor came in today and told us the cancer is in the hip socket and he may not be safe to walk. he wanted to do radiation but I don't think Davids doctors agreed. He said that if David gets through this he will probably have to have a hip replacement. I am starting to feel complete exhaustion and your prayers are greatly appreciated.
