Day 3 update

So, Ben is done with 3F8 treatment for the day. He had minimal pain and didn’t have any rescues of dilaudid during or after. He is sleeping right now, as they did administer another dose of dilaudid to get his blood pressure down.

I also just learned that we will be spending the night in the hospital. Since his blood pressure has been consistently high throughout the week they are concerned about the risk of seizure. High blood pressure is a normal side effect of 3F8, but I don’t recall it being high on a consistent basis. Better to be safe than sorry, right?

We will be leaving for Ben’s MRI soon, too. Say a quick prayer for Ben, please.
