Dad was put back in ICU today with fever and low blood pressure. The antibiotics are causing severe colitis, but the antibiotics are needed to treat an, as yet, undefined (possibly blood) infection.
The fluids given to him to increase the blood pressure cause other problems and the chemotherapy weakened his system to cause the infection. We're all very tired and confused. We saw lots of doctors today and I have notes somewhere upstairs, but I don't feel like getting them.
Basically, the way it was explained to us is that he has three different problems (lymphoma, pseudomembraneous colitis and low blood pressure) which are all worsened by whatever treatment they use for treating the other problems. That doesn't even count the blood clots and the pneumothorax which were discovered yesterday.
