We had hoped that Greg/Tate would be discharged today after his chemo and radiation, but it’s going to have to wait until tomorrow. He was getting anti-coagulants (blood thinners for the non-medical folk) to prevent his body from making clots and began to bleed from the site of his port. He didn’t bleed enough to be dangerous, just enough to make a mess. Count on Tate to make a mess!! They think the bleeding started because he was getting aspirin as well as the anti-coagulants and when he coughed it caused enough pressure that it broke through the clot at the incision site. Things were a bit delayed today, but he still got his radiation and chemo for this round finished. As much as he wanted to go home, I think we’re all glad to have him stay in the hospital for one extra day so that we’re sure the bleeding is under control. Tate’s looking forward to going home, hopefully in the morning.
Thank you to everyone for their love and all the positive energy being sent his way. It’s so appreciated.
