Doctor Day

After  a trip to the hospital for blood work and a doc visit, and then up to Plano so that Sandi could see what the apartment looks like and what we have left to do, we finally made the circuit and are back home.

Blood work was okay and relatively stable. Doctor was pleased about that, but was not pleased at how much worse her scalp cancers looked and how much worse her symptoms from her sinus tumor were. After doing some consultations, the decision was made to have us come back next Tuesday afternoon for blood work and a doctor visit. Assuming she is stable, they will then have her admitted to the main hospital to start chemo. During that process they will also finish this run of antibiotics for the bacterial blood infection. Once she finishes chemo, they can't use the antibiotics they are currently using on her for awhile, so that damn things needs to be fully gone .

The plan right now is for her to rest, work on what she wants to crafting wise or around the house, as she is able this weekend, and hope that when Tuesday rolls around things go as planned.

Hoping and praying everything goes well.

Us too. The scalp tumors have significantly worsened and it is clear her sinus tumor must have been growing as the congestion issue is way worse. My feeling is they are doing this as there is no other choice and they are hoping she is strong enough now to handle the chemo.

Hope that she can take the chemo.
