MDS Becomes AML - Stablilized
Today Mitch's condition is more stable with heart rate down a bit and platelets and white cells up. He is still totally sedated with a tube into his lungs for air and one to his stomach for food. Laina and I were so pleased to see him looking better this morning. But it is very hard to see him in this condition and totally out of it. So by this evening we are anxious to get him off the tubes and back to us. Hopefully that will be in the next couple of days and his breathing and health will steadily improve. And he'll start complaining mightily about all the poking and prodding he's gotten.
