This one will be short since there is nothing new to report really. We are still on the 7th floor waiting for a room on the 9th floor. Grant is the exact same. He is still not talking and seems to be in a lot of pain. I know his throat and mouth hurts, but I am guessing his stomach does too. His eyes keep rolling back and it freaks me out, but he is responsive so they think it is just related to the side effects of chemo or the morphine. So, that is it. The numbers went down, not up. He is getting plateletts and will need blood.

By the way. I noticed the sign at St. Lukes says they are short on 0+ and 0- blood and are low on plateletts. If you can, please go donate somewhere. Grant needs both 0+ and platelets and I know others out here do too. Thanks!
