After taking another load of stuff to the house and working there for a couple of hours, Scott and I went to the hospital to see Sandi. She was asleep when we arrived as they had done the blood machine/isolation deal at 5 AM today. 6 IVs of various things were running into her as she laid there sound asleep.
We had been there a few minutes when one of the IV pumps started beeping. After that happened for a couple of minutes she sort of woke up. She was very out of it and wasn't sure we were real. She gradually got more with it the next few minutes and we talked a little bit. She felt okay though she remains on a NPO diet so no food or drink. They are letting her have ice chips and popsicles. She thinks they are considering going after the tonsil tumor and removing her tonsils to do it.
There is no plan to send her home anytime soon or to restart her chemo. They are still analyzing the numbers on her pancreas tests as well as whatever they got from the blood machine this morning. She hates the procedure as it makes her so cold and she still hates the port in her neck though the pain level from that seems to be a little lower as it has settled in somewhat. She is still an unhappy camper, but also still very much out of it. She is very pale and has an insane number of blankets on her as she tries to stay warm.
So, she does not look good, does not feel good, and clearly is in no shape to come home anytime soon.
