Meds Will Start on Monday- Full Speed Ahead

Well, the phone has been ringing off the hook today. I've spoken to Dr. Safah's nurse, Amy, quite a bit.

Because of the threat of blood clots from the Thalidomide, Dom is also going to be taking Coumadin to thin his blood.

Medications will start on Monday. Local Walgreens had to special order the stuff.

We're headed back to Tulane next Thursday......

His chest xray showed "a small irregularity on his 9th rib", so Doc has ordered a CT SCAN of his chest. (Possibly from the Myeloma). Then, we need to get blood work done.... PT IR (?) to check how thin his blood will be after taking the Cumidin for a few days. Might take a few tweaks to get it just right.
