No More Blood

Today his bleeding was stopped.  He required no new blood in 24 hours.  His blood count was rising.

An Upper Bowel Follow-up test revealed nothing.  Still don't know where or why he bled.  Just know it has stopped. 

Thank you, God.

Today his admitting doctor was off.  The covering doctor didn't do anything but stick her head in the door and earn a consulting fee.  No results of tests.  No new ideas .  The GI doctor didn't show his face either.

He had a long talk with his nurse.  Asked about the doctor's competency.  Four days in the hospital and no one knew anything.  Who was a good oncologist in case the carcinoids cut out of his bowel ten years before were back?

Tomorrow we need a new plan.
