Saturday, January 9, 2016...51 days in the hospital
BJ had a good day! He slept well and is feeling good today. He ate cereal for breakfast, a slider cheeseburger for lunch and broccoli cheese soup for dinner. He even ate 2 packs of cream cheese and chives crackers overnight.
His labs looked about the same as yesterday. He didn't need blood again today. His platelet count went up to 6k today on its own. Electrolytes look normal, except he's a little low on calcium.
BJ decided to get up and use the walker today. He walked around his bed to the chair and sat for a while. Then he decided to take a walk out of his room and into the hallway. It was the furthest distance he has walked in months. He pushed through the pain in his feet and calves. Afterward, he said he was tired, but felt really good and was smiling. What a warrior!!
