so more drama... dah dah dah.

as we are being admitted this morning, the receptionist tells us that it's stage 4. we haven't heard that until today, but i doesn't change things much at this point anyways, so what are ya gonna do? so then he gets admitted into a double room, bummer, but that gets changed pretty quickly. he goes into a little surgery to have a "grochong" port put into his heart so that they can administer the chemo long term, blah blah blah, and THEN tells him he shouldn't have eaten today, thanks for that great info a few hours too late. his two options, wait until tomorrow, or not use a sedative or pain meds. two guesses as to what randy said...

so he now has a two tubes sticking out of his chest for the next 7 months, is in his new private room, ready to start chemo, and the nurse says, there's a hold on his chemo. MEDI-CAL WAS FIGHTING IT!!! wow. they wanted to make sure that it was necessary. seriously. amazing. the dr. was livid and fought to push it through, and then the ball got started rolling again.
he got to eat, so did i, (thanks chris). they gave him something to take away the nausea before they gave him the chemo, and it took the edge off his nerves. next time i want a pull off that I.V. the kids got to visit. did some homework. then we left before they gave him anything... all day, and they still hadn't started. this just means he will be in the hospital until thursday. here's some pics as promised: the second pic is of him trying to escape :)
