Sandi Update for 06/14/17

I have held off saying anything as I was hoping the news was better. Things looked good on Saturday and have slid downhill since then.

Monday afternoon they rushed Sandi into blood dialysis and did it as her numbers continued to worsen. After that happened they had to do a blood transfusion, followed by more yesterday, and yet more blood transfusions today. She is also off and on running a fever of up to 102. Since her normal is 97.2 a fever of 102 for her is really high.

She is back NPO which means her diet is clear fluids only. They have her on more powerful antibiotics and are running numerous blood tests as they try to determine what is happening to her.  She is not feeling well and is very unhappy that she will not be home for our 32nd wedding anniversary tomorrow.

So, the news is not good. Will update as I know things and hopefully the news will be good.

Me too. I kept quiet hoping it would reverse.

So sorry to hear this, Kevin. Hang in there, the both of you.

Keep the faith, Kevin, as so many of us are also doing on your and Sandi's behalf. She's come through these things many times before.

We were back on the roller coaster, Jeanne, and I was hoping it would be a short ride. It appears not to be yet again so that is why I finally said what was going on.

We are trying, Jerry. Trying hard.

Kevin R. Tipple said...

Yes she has, Barry, but each time she is far weaker than the previous one. Things are taking a toll.

Elizabeth said...

Good thoughts & prayers.

Caroline Clemmons said...

Thoughts and prayers for you both, Kevin. You two have had an exhausting past few years. Bless you both.

Thank you, Elizabeth and Caroline. It has been hard.

She has had more blood transfusions today.
