Sandi Update

Sandi is now home after a very long day at the hospital. She was only supposed to have some lab work today, but after I explained what had been going on all weekend coupled with what she was saying when they talked to her and could get her to wake up and focus, they worked her in for a doctor visit too. It was during that they discovered she was running a fever and found a couple of other issues. They also ran some tests that came up with some answers and are running other tests that should come back with some more answers over the next couple of days.

If they had a bed for her they would have admitted her without question. The four floors in the hospital that house the cancer patients are full and have a waiting list that goes into double digits. She is so medically fragile right now they felt it was safer to send her home after they did some stuff to her than admit her on one of the other floors.  So, after pumping a bunch of fluids into her that included platelets, steroids, and some other stuff, they have sent her home with strict instructions to me on how to monitor her and when to call 911.

Assuming nothing goes wrong tonight or the next couple of days, we go back Thursday for more blood work and another doctor visit. As of right this minute, she is doing a bit better than she has in recent days.

Tell her I said to keep fighting, and you try to get some rest tonight.

Kevin, you and Sandi are often in my thoughts and always in my prayers.

Thank you, Barry and Caroline.

No change. We are back to where we were Monday morning. Doctor and blood work tomorrow, probably more blood transfusions, and who knows what else. Going to be another long day at the hospital.
