Rub ‘n Scrub, Phase I, started yesterday. We are now stocked on paper towels, bleach, cleaner with bleach, Lysol spray, Clorox wipes, antibacterial soap & antibacterial gel. The bathroom received the treatment, yesterday. Today, we just kinda laid low.
AnnMarie is still suffering from a pretty heavy head cold. Curtis is under isolation until Monday. It’s killing me to keep the kids separate, but we really can’t take a chance.
I get this text today:
“Mike just finished the Firefighter Columbia Tower Stair climb in Seattle. (big fundraiser for leukemia & lymphoma) and told a TV reporter before hand that he was climbing for Gregory Bibb”
Mike is husband to my very awesome friend Lisa. Mike is a Firefighter, here in Spokane and Lisa is an inspiration and a Journalist. I love you guys!!
Gregory had a shower today and did really well. I had to cover his Central Line dressing and he cooperated so nicely. Even helped me out a bit. When I removed the Tegaderm (used to protect the dressing) he showed little dots of Petechia. Which can be a sign of low Platelets. We already know his platelets are low, it was just further proof that this thing is real. I have moments when everything seems normal and then vertigo sets in and it all spins back into focus. I’m still waiting for my breaking point. I admit that I can’t settle on anything for more than 30 minutes at a time. Thankfully, there is lots to keep busy with. If all goes well, I will be going to the office on Tuesday.
Gregory has a doctor’s appointment, tomorrow. Blood draw and exam. Then again on Thursday. I’ve nearly completed packing separate bags for the hospital. They are available to grab at a moments notice.
AnnMarie is not sleeping well tonight. I just go. Till later, gotta jet.
