Sandi Update

All the blood tests came back clean. Negative. Clear. No sign of anything virus or any other thing doing anything that would cause her anemia. Basically, they found nothing to explain why her red blood cell count is not coming up. It just is not moving.

The only thing they found is she is a bit low on folic acid. That might be making the anemia worse so they are putting her on a supplement for that.

Going forward the plan is for her to start chemo Tuesday assuming everything goes okay blood work and doctor visit early that morning. They would do the four day hospitalization deal which would mean she probably would not come home till Friday evening.

On the something fun front----If she is up to it we also plan to go see Jenny Milchman at THE WILD DETECTIVES Sunday evening as she will be in town for her book signing. This assumes she can go and I am well enough to drive down to the location as it is very far from our apartment. Time will tell on that.

Whew. I hope you get to see the Wild Detectives.

Hope that the folic acid pushes the red blood cells back into action. Hope that you are both feeling good enough to see that. Would be great to have so fun in your lives.

I hope Sandi gets to see Jenny Milchman and you get to see the Wild Detectives!

That would be great. Much love to each of you.

Thank you all...she is not doing very well this evening, but I at least know it is normal stuff and not because of yet another horrible issue.
