His chest pains have gone today and since last night he has received 2 units of blood and some platelets. He has been on a NaCl drip for most of the day, so walking with the frame with the drip in tow has been a logistic nightmare!
The Consultant Haematologist made a brief visit this afternoon to discuss his reaction to the Chemo and progress. She confirmed that the kidney function is still abnormal and the blood count still low, and she would wish to see these improve together with any heart problem (which is likely to be pericarditis) before Colin is allowed home. Although from a practical point of view I would like to see Colin much more mobile before he returns home. The Consultant also confirmed that there is to be an MDT (Multi-Disciplinary Team) meeting to discuss Colin's case and any future treatment, and she is concerned that he might not be able to receive any more Chemo due to the severe reactions which developed this time.
So ...it's a waiting game all round.
