My dad isn't feeling well...

I'm hoping they do something about it today. He's been feeling very run down, short of breath and sleeping a lot, especially bad yesterday. I don't think i've updated lately but last week he saw the doctor about his bone marrow test. The results basically show his bone marrow just isn't working anymore to make new blood cells. So they are going to try a new drug called Procrit that is supposed to help kick start it again to build new cells. I may or may not work. If it doesn't he will have to continue having blood transfusions probably forever. He also has to be very careful about not coming into contact with germies and getting sick. Anyway he's been feeling progressively worse and my mom called yesterday and asked the nurses to find out why they havn't done another blood transfusion, so far i don't think anythings been done, but hopefully they do something today. I'm pretty sure we'll be able to get up to see him as the weather is cooperating, or so it seems.
