Update for Megat

This is Megat sitting on my chest. I have to wrap him up in a towel when putting in the suppository in his anus. Then he needs to be restrained for about 30 to 40 minutes for the lingzhi to be absorbed. It's a long process but we are used to it. 

We had spoken with Dr Ly regarding Megat's care. He said it was ok not to continue with the vincristine as we don't actually know for sure if it would be as helpful for him now. So we discussed other protocols. 
He has put on more weight and is now 3.49 kg. I was quite relieved at this as I was afraid he may not have eaten enough to sustain his organs. Of cos he still needs to be hand- fed in the  mornings. 
Megat is on Éprex as he is anaemic and we need to go back this Saturday for a blood test and his PCV. Dr Ly said that if he gets worse suddenly I needed to bring him in for a blood transfusion but he is holding on, much to my relief. 
I guess I will have to discuss it with Bujang as he had given blood for Totoro last year. Of course Bujang blood type is A. I do not know Megat's blood type at all but I hope I do not need to know that.

We also hope you will not need to know... It sounds like Megat is holding his own under your excellent and loving care.
