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.

Sleepover at HUP!

Finally got some freakin' lasix IV after jumping up and down. Bob's sats are only 93-94% on 6lpm and he needs the help of 2 people to stand. Tuesday he was walking with a walker and his sat on 2lpm was 98-100%. Tried telling this to the hem-onc resident who is still worried about cr.So then they did a cxr which i said isnt going to be helpful cuz this is rt.sided heart failure. They(first resident called for reinforcements) said he might have pneumonia! Sweet Jesus! Bob finally said give me the lasix. They finally ordered it to shut us up I think. Anyway, I'm spending the night til an actual cardiologist sees him tomorrow. Oh! Btw the cxr showed no change!
