TeeTaa Posted June 26, 2004 Share Posted June 26, 2004 Morning, all. We need to draw on the expertise and prayers of all you wonderful people this morning. TBone was taken to the hospital early this morning, as he was coughing up bright red blood. Doctor says that broncitis and/or pneumonia can cause a broken blood vessel, which could be the reason. His blood pressure is a low, but it's been running low. His cough has been worse in the last few days, so hopefully it's a simple case of broncitis or pneumonia that can be treated quickly with antibiotics. They're checking his dilantin levels (I didn't/don't know if he's still taking it) and doing a chest xray. He's also got a headache - the first one he's had in months, but I don't think it's real bad. If those brain mets are rearing their ugly heads again, we're just not gonna be happy. Do any of you have any other ideas/suggestions of what could be causing this? He had his 6th taxotere treatment on Monday, and hasn't been feeling well this week (but if he's got broncitis or pneumonia, that could be why he's been under the weather). His wife doesn't think they'll keep him in the hospital - if they do, I'll head right down there. Will try to keep you posted as I get more info. PLEASE say an extra little prayer for my big brother.
