I visited after lunch by which time he was sleeping. When he awoke it was with a headache and later complained of double vision (in the distance). He has become neutropenic which means his ability to fight off infection is seriously affected. So it's aprons fall all. It transpired he had a temperature and the staff nurse took immediate advice from the Consultant Haematologist who instructed administration of antibiotic (which was stopped yesterday) is restarted through the Hickman Line and blood samples taken. This was all done very efficiently so hopefully whatever was developing has been caught in time. The good news is that the Creatinine levels are still reducing, albeit slowly.
Colin struggled again with his tea - mainly from the coordination and exhaustion problems, and tells me he found dealing with dinner difficult for the same reasons. Will have to see what can be done to help with this. Have brought home all the banned foods for neutropenics - got to be really careful now.
Visitors have to follow strict hygiene routine now: Leaving outdoor clothing (coats etc) on hooks outside room, handwashing and gel application, and putting on apron before entering room. And of course, not visiting if suffering with viruses or knowingly been near to those who are. Today he didn't feel like receiving any other visitors but tomorrow things might change.
