Thursday 10/2

Mike here again and it's Thursday morning. The week has been manageable with Wednesday being the worst so far. This is mainly because Lisa wasn't interested in eating or drinking at all and complained about her lip and inside of her mouth being sore. Linda took it upon herself to call the doctor and have more hydration bags delivered since the last one finished on Monday night. They definitely help to top off her fluids and she seems better on the days she has them. I hooked her up last night and it appeared to help today since she was more energetic this morning and said she felt better. (Although she's sleeping as I type this.) The throwing up still comes in the morning pretty regularly with another bout in the afternoon so it's strange how days like these seem like "good" ones. I took her in this morning for another blood test. So far this week her numbers have been acceptable, say a prayer that they continue that trend as well as no complications i.e., fever, bad mouth sores and the rest. Thanks everyone for your support! We'll update again soon.
......... 15 minutes later .....
Just got the call with her blood test results [sigh] low hemoglobin, low platelets so we're heading to Mott's for transfusions. More later.
......... It's later, 4:15 PM to be precise and were done with the platelets and about half way through the blood. We should be out of here by 5:oo - 5:30. With all the fluids topped off we should be set for a cool but sunny weekend. BTW - Maranda is going for her MRI on Saturday morning so send a few her way if you're able. Thanks everyone!
