Setback--Sandi Update 6/22/17

Just came home from spending most of the morning with Sandi and meeting with the doctor. She has had a significant setback from yesterday as the bad numbers have soared in several areas. This is especially true of her pancreas. The abdominal pain started again late yesterday and they are addressing that.

Today they are again working on trying to get the bad numbers down while also giving her another blood transfusion. They already are planning to do more blood transfusions tomorrow and most likely through the weekend. Coming home early next week is pretty much out the window at this point.

Damn.

Yep. It was a very grim meeting with her doc and the treatment team. He was clearly very concerned though he was trying hard to reassure me all is going to be fine. It is also apparent that any recent gains have been totally obliterated in the last 18 hours.

This one step forward, two steps backward business is frustrating, to say the least. Praying that this trend will be reversed and that any step backward be followed with at least two steps forward. It's easier said than done but stay strong.

Trying to, Jerry, but it is really hard right now. She went back several steps. I don't know how to quantify it, but we are back to where we were a couple of weeks ago.

This is so terrible. So sorry to hear your news.

Hated sharing it. I think I jinxed things yesterday.

Kevin, you must be so exhausted and discouraged. I know Sandi is too, but she is in a bed with people monitoring her. You, on the other hand, do not. Try to rest so you can be strong for her.

Can't very much as I have to pack up this place with Scott's help and get things moved to the house. Had no idea I had so many books.
