Sandi is Home

Sandi is already home and things went much better than expected. The cardiac surgeon was unable to put the port on her right side due to the damage caused by the last one and what happened to her with the chemotherapy before. So, he inserted it on her left side, along the collar bone, and thinks it may cause less pain than the last one. We certainly hope so.

She is currently in considerable pain and has taken a pain pill that should alleviate that and help her sleep. It also is the final step before she sees the bone marrow transplant doctor next Monday as to what he can do for her. I wish we didn't have to wait another week as that will let her cancer grow still more, but she clearly needs the recovery time.

Needless to say, I am a wreck. So, I will play catchup later on e-mail and all. But, I did want to say thank you for all the messages, prayers, and support. It is much, much appreciated by all of us. Thanks as well to the unnamed donor who made a donation yesterday as things are also once again very bad from a money standpoint. Much, much appreciated.

I will keep you updated.....

I hope she can get some rest and that the doctor can do something for her. We go for the Judy's third chemo in the new sequence tomorrow.
