As much as we like Georgetown Hospital we still can't wait to get the heck out of there. Things are really starting to get under our skin. Things like the food service. On the weekends it seems like getting food to patients is not a priority to the hospital. On Diane's day they didn't ask what Cody wanted to eat. They delivered the wrong food. Or they didn't show up at all. It seems that they really have a hard time with staffing. The sad thing is, the patient is the one who suffers.
Saturday they knew that Cody was going to need platelets. It was decided by the "doctor on call" that they were going to wait until his platelet numbers went down even more before giving him platelets. They were plenty low on Saturday and there was no need to wait but "oh well." So at 3:30 Sunday morning they decide that the platelets are low enough. Well, the nurse and the resident pock their heads in the room at 3:30 and want Cody to take pre-medicine for the transfusion. I had to physically hold Cody down and force him to take the meds. This is the kinda bone headed stuff that drives us crazy. There has to be some level of thought put into this stuff. Anyway, it's all starting to wear on us.
As for Cody's numbers today. His ANC is at 1200 which is pretty good. I think the doctor told Diane that she wants him at 4 or 5 thousand before she will let him go home. At this point his number should double and triple everyday.
Keep praying please...
