Today in December

Today was a 5 hour visit at the oncologist.  Started with blood draw.  Then a visit with the oncologist.  Oncologist was concerned about Roger in a wheelchair and a fatigue level of 10 (1-10 with 10 being the most fatigued).  So the oncologist ordered a CT scan immediately, which required another blood draw and then an IV insertion.  That's 3 holes in Roger, not a happy pin cushion.  Fortunately only required 4 pokes for all 3.  Nothing particularly different on scan, so oncologist is referring Roger to a pulmonologist.  Roger's breathing continues to worsen, now on oxygen 24/7, is getting breathless just moving from one room to another.
