**Newest info: No pneumonia, but multiple clots in my lungs, some fluid in my lungs, my heart may be under too much stress, I have a large but relatively new tumor coming out of my rib and protruding right through/into my left lung, my hemoglobin is too low, as is my potassium. I'm having a lot of trouble eating much of anything - I'll have to talk to the nutrition folks at the hospital to see if they can bring something very small every two hours, rather than a bigger meal every five. Not that I'm likely to eat much of that, either (not a big fan of the company that provides the hospital food here, I'm afraid).
The coumadin may not be thinning my blood adequately, so I'll be either combining it with another thinner that must be injected into my stomach every day (which means I'll have to do it myself... yeah, that'll be great...) or doing just the injected one.
I'll be in the hospital for at least two more days, maybe more. They'll want to feel comfortable that I'm not throwing more clots and that I'm unlikely to make more.
My bone marrow isn't up to the job of making more cells, so I may need to start having blood infusions. New chemo routine, so we'll see if that helps. This one will be my last 'reasonable' resort - after this, it's more extreme drugs with less record of success, when the more normally successful ones have already failed. So... you know.
