Friday afternoon from Markysroom--

Markys blood pressure is quite high for the last few days since the start of steroids. Attempts by meds to reduce his pressure havent helped yet. Lastest pressure is 148/110! Heart rate is in the 150's!!!

Mark is about to go for a STAT CT scan of his chest. He as a large pleural effusion . All these combinations of issues have raised the suspicion of a pulmonary embolism. Which means..a blood clot somewhere in his lungs.

This is an emergent situation so the docs are running around like crazy.

I will update when he comes back from CT.
