Sandi was dizzy and running a significant fever again this morning when we got to the doctor. They pulled a bunch of blood out of her before she saw the doctor. The results from Wednesday were back and she has a pretty serious bladder infection. It would be bad deal enough on its own, but with her white blood cell count now just above 0 at .05 it is a horrendous deal. Her kidney function remains very poor which means the infection is beating the heck out of her kidneys.
So they hit her today with another of the white blood cell boosting shots as well as the big bag of saline and the IV antibiotic.
We stay put at home for the weekend. She is to keep drinking fluids--mainly water---to try and keep everything wide open and working.
We go back mid morning Monday for the complete blood work deal as well as another bag of saline and another bag of antibiotics. Depending on those test results and how she is doing pain wise and everything else will determine what the plan for the week will be.
