Sandi Hospitalized

After seemingly a very good day with Sandi where she was much more like normal, we got a call from the doctor’s office just before five. It was news they did not want to get or share. All of the blood tests from Sunday came back positive. That means she definitely does have a bacterial blood infection and it is serious. We were told to get to the hospital asap so that they could get her admitted and start IV antibiotics.

By 7:30 this evening they had her admitted, already had done a chest x-ray to make sure that her heart and lungs are still okay, and had discovered that she is now running a very low grade fever. They had pulled blood for another round of testing and were setting her up to start IV antibiotics. She was very tired and very cold so they had four blankets on her to try to warm her up.

I don’t know if she will be in for two weeks as discussed yesterday at the oncologist’s office or something else is now planned. All I do know is that the folks on her case are clearly very worried.

Crap.

Ditto. I am stunned and very upset. Today she was damn near normal. I really had thought the test last week had been a false alarm. And now this.....and the fever they had worried about has started.

Nobody should have to go through this much. So very sorry.

It hurts so much more when you think things are going okay and then you get punched in the gut with bad news. Thoughts and prayers.

Thank you, Patti. It does seem so unfair.

Thanks, Jeanne. Yes, we both really believed everything was going better and that the test from last week was bogus. The fact that everything from Sunday came back wrong just slapped us sideways.
