janetg Posted April 13, 2005 Share Posted April 13, 2005 Hi, Ron was admitted to hospital yesterday after visiting the emergency department with extreme SOB. He had seen his onc. on Monday and at that time we requested an abdominal cscan ASAP with many cuts to interstitial area. Lung SATS were 96. When he was trying to breath his whole abdomen would move. This continued through Monday night and appeared even to worsen on Tuesday am. Ron's son took him to emergency yesterday and he was admitted after chest xrays, blood work etc. He was give IV with steroids and hooked up to oxygen. His breathing was less stressed when I left him at 10:20 last night. The MD said that a catscan would be completed today. In meantime, central booking called to give him his appointment for tomorrow (that was for the detailed scan that the onc. wants ASAP). Will the catscan today be the same as the one the onc. wanted? The one he usually has is done with gastagraphin - he has to fast from midnight and drink the mix. I'm leaving work now to go back up to the hospital to see if we've made any progression. One part of me is so afraid that we're in big trouble and the more logical side thinks no way could cancer rear its ugly head this way over a period of several days. I hope the logical part is right. Please pray for us - we will battle this whatever the results. We're really thankful for the wonderful (almost 13 months) we've had even with the chemo, radiation and numerous scans etc. and we're more than willing to fight again. I'll update when I get a little more to go on. Thanks for listening. Janet Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
