Friday afternoon--

Test results came back...No blood clots in his lungs!!

Quite a bit of fluid though. Doc said it probably moved up there while he was laying so flat after his angiogram for 4 hrs! He had stay totally horizontal so as not to re-open the puncture site where they inserted the catheter in his femoral artery.

He will start Methotrexate tonight---which is a chemotherapy type
drug. They are hoping it will help halt the production of all the weird spindle cell growth stuff thats attacking his intestines

He is pretty distressed today with difficulty breathing from all the fluid crowding his lung space.
