05.04.2008 - Complications Arise

From Julian's COTA Journal.

Stacy woke up this morning with a sore throat, and when it didn't clear up by lunch, we decided it would be best for me to stay here with Julian while Stacy checks into a hotel until she's better. Official house policy here at Ronald MacDonald House states that if someone in the residing party gets sick, the party has to leave until the sick person is better. In this case - since it wasn't Julian who got sick - they're letting me stay in the room with Julian. Otherwise, checking out means packing up all your things in order to make room for another family. That would be a serious problem, in that when we came here we were packed to stay for many months.

So, Stacy cleared it with the staff, and off she went. Julian and I are going to walk across the street to the mall for dinner and a little walk around before bed. Tomorrow morning, I'll take him to dialysis.

Cheryl is still here with us in Palo Alto, but wanted a little space of her own (the rooms here are very snug). Since she's an employee of Marriott hotels back east, she gets the smokin' deal room rate. So she's on her own for a few days as well.

We should find out tomorrow whether the May 12th date is going to work for Julian's transplant. Please pray that everyone is healthy for the big day.
