Today we had Tim's doctor's appointment to discuss plans for his PICC. It was awful to get there with how Tim was doing and we almost didn't make it, but we ended up making it there and through the appointment. This was a new doctor for Tim, though I have seen her once in the past. The appointment itself went well, and Tim liked the new doctor. He had a bunch of labs drawn so we are waiting to get the results back on those.
His hospital appointment is scheduled for noon on Monday. Tim is really stressed out about that, but we are so hopeful that this will help him get over this current hurdle. The doctor is pulling out the "big guns" and we're expecting big things. Our doctor said that it typically takes about 3 months on IV to get over the initial horrible-ness, and that is basically what I have experienced. So, Tim will likely have a very rough next few months, but we are hopeful that he will be well enough to go fishing, play basketball with the kids, and all the other things he enjoys by summer time. Please pray with us that that will happen. He has been in such bad shape and really needs a breakthrough.
