I told David today that the one word that can describe this month is "waiting." That is all we do now. We wait. We wait to get tests, we wait to get the results and then we wait to go home.

Today we waited, and waited, and waited. Finally, this is what happened:

  1. The dermatologist Drs came by, looked at Grant's spots and left. They were not concerned.
  2. The infectious disease Drs came in and looked at Grant and ordered more tests. They have no conclusions. They are testing him for several viruses and bacterias. Grant had to have his nose swabbed, his throat swabbed, and his bottom swabbed. They also ordered a test which required a finger poke and a seperate vein poke. Not fun.
  3. Grant FINALLY had his port fixed!!! I told the Drs about the liquid that was now coming from it and they decided to look a little closer. It was a hole. The surgeons put him under, cleaned it, and have stitched it. Unfortunatly, they can not access it until next Wednesday, so all the bacterial cultures they now need have to be by a finger or vein poke. (see above)
  4. The MRI finally happened today for Grant's spine and brain. Still waiting on those results.

I'm not sure when we will get to home. I hope soon. Until then, I will be waiting. Waiting for results, maybe more tests, and waiting to go home to be with the whole family.
