Taking it Easy, But the Pain Continues

Robert has been taking it pretty easy this week. He’s been in quite a bit of pain in his lower right rib. He and the doctor both concur that he somehow injured himself a couple of weeks ago while doing some exercises in physical therapy. He’s also been fighting a UTI and it’s very resistant to most antibiotic therapy. The drugs they were giving him for the UTI caused him to feel nauseated and to not want to eat so he’s been on an IV for hydration. Yesterday, though, he got his appetite back for the most part. He’s lost a little weight and is down to 211 lbs. now.
