Going Home...... (?)

As of right now, it looks as though we may possibly be going home late this afternoon or supper hour.

Medical Student Dan came in this morning and checked Blake, and he discussed the possibility of Blake going home. A bit later, he and the resident doctor, Dr. Melicharkova, returned. She looked at Blake's arm and said they will be starting him on antibiotics for his arm, treating it as cellulitis. She wants to ensure it doesn't get any worse and start spreading up the arm.

She also confirmed that we can't leave until we see Dr. Hooky, who is on duty this week, and we likely won't be leaving until at least 5pm. She wants to make sure all i's are dotted and t's are crossed regarding Blake's next infusion of Remicade. I'm hoping they'll just "re-admit" him, but that's a really big "hope" and if I were a bettin' woman, I'd bet it won't happen. We were fortunate to get this first dose in hospital. Getting the second infusion in hospital is quite unlikely. However, God is still on the throne and likes to perform miracles every day.... 'cause He's just that kind o' God.

Blake is still feeling slight bouts of nausea. Not sure why that's happening. Hopefully it will pass as he gets stronger. They weighed him again this morning, and he was 106 lbs. How in tarnations did he gain 2 lbs in one day??? Seems odd considering the fact that he has eaten quite lightly the last couple of days.

So, that's the plan folks, to come home today if Dr. Hooky gives his approval. If he says, "Let's wait one more day", I have no problem with that at all. I'd rather stay one more day rather than rush things and end up being back at Picton's Emergency.

It DOES look like we will be able to go to Jake's Grade 12 Graduation Ceremony. I was going to go back to Picton for the ceremony and then come back to Kingston afterwards, but maybe now we can all go. We will wheel Blake into the Community Centre in a wheelchair, right alongside my Dad in HIS wheelchair. Maybe they'll race. hahha.

Well, that's it for now, gang. I'm gonna watch the last few minutes of the Netherlands vs. Slovakia soccer game. I can't believe how much I'm enjoying the games!
