And rotavirus

The stool sample from the other night has already come back and is positive for rotavirus. So it would appear that is still lingering. They’re still optimistic that it is clearing up, though.

Dr. P read the C-T scan. It still showed some thickening of the walls of the intestines (read GVHD) but overall they looked good. He seemed particularly happy that the scan didn’t show any air in the bowels. I’m not sure why that’s significant, but I’m glad he’s glad.

The doctor continues to be optimistic that he’ll be discharged to home next week. That, of course is contingent on Josh getting off all the narcotics. His pain is still significant and his Diluadid is dispensed via pump at his push of a button and he can’t go home on that.
