Day 5 of 29
We found out we won't be going home today.
BJ's blood sugar is 269. And the chemo he is getting right now is going to raise it more. They're sending an endocrinologist to look at his sugar. His Hemoglobin dropped
so he's going to get 2 more units of blood too. That takes 4 hours in itself. I'm so disappointed and BJ is really mad. His jaw is hurting...another one of the side effects of one of the chemo drugs.
BJ finally cried tonight.
He pulled the sheet up over his head and cried, and my heart broke some more. He was upset that he was going to keep getting blood sugar checks and insulin shots. He hates needles, and mostly hates getting his finger pricked. He just wanted to get out of the hospital, and now we had to stay another day. I talked to him and encouraged him, and told him how strong he is, and that we're going to get through this. His breakdown didn't last very long, and he was back to his rock-solid self.
