We just got home from the cancer doctor. Sandi has had a serious setback so the IVIG planned for today was shelved. She had a zero white blood cell count today, a fever of about three degrees, and some other serious blood work issues. An infection of some type is actively causing multiple issues so they took lots of blood and urine to culture to try and figure out what is happening this time.
Over a couple of hours they pumped a serious IV antibiotic into her along with plenty of saline.
We go back tomorrow and Friday for more of the same plus lab work and doctor stuff as needed.
What the treatment plan for the chemo and IVIG going forward will be determined Friday or later once they get this situation under control.
The picture is from today after we had been there about two hours and the determination had been made they would not be admitting her to the hospital and instead would treat in infusion.
