#31 Diary of Remenzer : Ray Always Strong - This is Our Story Fighting His Severe Aplastic Anaemia Part 6

FOREWORD

Greetings, Hive Community! How are you doing? I hope you're all doing well. Before I begin, please accept my apologies for mass tagging. I'm tagging each of you because I wanted to express my gratitude for liking/voting on my post here, which has earned me hive bucks, which I've already used to cover my son's expenses. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

REVISE

It's been 241 days since we've had to deal with life's unpredictability. Ray, my kid, was diagnosed with severe aplastic anaemia. Every day is a fight to win, to survive, and Ray always bold, strong, and victorious. He will keep doing that. He has the greatest of friends and family by his side.

Aplastic anaemia is a condition in which the body fails to create enough blood cells. The stem cells that reside in the bone marrow create blood cells. Aplastic anaemia is characterised by a lack of all types of blood cells, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.

STORY TO BE TOLD OF WHAT HAPPENED TODAY

GOOD MORNING

p_20210627_081516.jpg
It's 8:15 in the morning. I haven't sleep yet. I've been working from here.
p_20210627_081556.jpg
Looking out the window is truly a gift. It makes my tired eyes and shoulder feel better.
p_20210627_081613.jpg
Nothing else has the roughness and excitement that the guitar has.
p_20210627_081823.jpg
This is how it looked from the inside.
p_20210627_081845.jpg
That the window.

A MUST DO

p_20210627_081902.jpg
Record of Ray's input and output.

Masa/Tarikh : Time/Date
Makan : Eat
Minum : Drink
Kencing : Urine
Berak : Feces
Muntah : Puke
Lain-lain : Others

p_20210627_082327.jpg
The urine output cup is used to calculate the patient's urine output. If possible, urine production should be measured every four hours.

p_20210627_082825.jpg
Wheelchair with toilet. The wheelchair's basin is in the toilet. I'll put it under the wheelchair if it's necessary.

HIS CURRENT STATUS OF CARE

p_20210627_084426.jpg
His nose infection appears to be improving. His nose began to improve after few times of nasal endoscopy procedure.
His blood reading:

Hemoglobin : 10.2
Platelet x 10^9/L : 9
TWBC x 10^9/L : 1.0
CRP : 176.4

After his nose infection cleared, the value of CRP dropped dramatically, from 370 to 176.4. After two months of everyday fight, victory has been achieved.

The next treatment will be focus on Immunosuppressive therapy (IST) with antithymocyte globulin (ATG). Hopefully, everything goes smoothly.

THE CHALLENGE

Fever

p_20210627_133036.jpg
His fever does not take a break. He was given paracetamol every 6 hours, sometimes 4 hours if the fever came on earlier.

Vomit

p_20210628_000252.jpg
He throws up 2-4 times every day.
p_20210602_233959.jpg
The worst. Hmmm

Bleeding gum

p_20210627_135232.jpg
p_20210627_135252.jpg

Less Appetite

p_20210627_141324.jpg
Fried mee with fried eggs is all he wants to eat. Thank you so much, Ray! He just eats once a day. He had lost his appetite and was unable to eat more than once.
p_20210627_150534.jpg

DARK SOON

p_20210627_155719.jpg
He usually falls asleep till midnight after finishing his lunch and midday medicine.
p_20210627_160750.jpg
Meanwhile, I take care of the cleaning.
p_20210627_185418.jpg
I'll wait until after 6 p.m. to walk down to the kiosk and buy the that food Ray requested.
p_20210627_185803.jpg
I'm less likely to be exposed to pathogens if there are fewer people around.
p_20210627_190140.jpg
p_20210627_190653.jpg
As he requested, I bought him fried mee and eggs.
p_20210627_191232.jpg
I need to take a bath and clean myself in the room next to that door before entering his room.

IT'S NIGHT

p_20210627_223315.jpg
To get me moving, I need coffee. Coffee without sugar is the best!
p_20210627_234411.jpg
The bitterness of the coffee is similar to my face.

MID-NIGHT

p_20210627_235006.jpg
It's almost midnight, I had to wake him up for the medicine
p_20210627_235131.jpg
That's the mid-night routine.
p_20210628_000644.jpg
He's going through his messages from his mother.
p_20210628_001109.jpg
Two down, three more to go.
p_20210628_003244.jpg
After done with the medicine, it's time to clean his teeth and mouth.
p_20210628_003933.jpg
Mouth set cleaner ready.
p_20210628_014619.jpg
It's 1:46 am. Time for him to sleep, again.
p_20210628_014959.jpg
Meanwhile, me, getting ready to create a new post. Which is this post.
p_20210628_050730.jpg
Did I tell you about his fever?
p_20210628_050804.jpg
I also help out as a nurse. He does not want the reading to be taken by the nurse.

THANK YOU

The typed list will be presented first with this post, the handwriting (still work in progress) list will come sooner. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you so much for your upvotes. God Bless you.
