Dr. Bobs Adventure

We've created this blog for several reasons. First is to keep family and friends(including Bobs' pts.)informed of Bobs' condition while he undergoes treatment for Acute Myelogenous Leukemia(AML) at HUP. You may also write to Bob by posting a comment, which I'll print for him to read. Please feel free to pass this blog site on to anyone you think may want to join us.Instructions to blog are listed under day 12, and bobs' address etc are under day 14. Click on April Archives to find both.

Hi all, Well, the cath has been postponed until at least Wed. It was decided that aggressive diuretics were needed to get rid of more fluid. In addifion to lasix, Bob's also getting diamox,bc he had a metabolic alkalosis.The hem-onc fellow was also in and told Bob steroids will be started too (60mg. Prednisone daily).His breathing is better at rest but he still gets winded. really easily.I just spoke to him a little while ago and he's reading and dozing.So thats about all. I'm going to work tomorrow a.and my s-i-l Santa will be visiting our guy. A big thank you to Bill and Anne for coming down today, treating me to lunch and Bob to a yogurt parfait and cookie. We are so darn blessed!!! So good night a d God bless all of you. Love, Bob and Mo P.S.If you co.ment anonymously please sign your name, so I can tell Bob who's writing. Thank you!
