So here's the scoop:
Yesterday the Princess Mom's white blood count was sky-high.
Her blood sugar couldn't be stabilized.
Her INR was about 7 when they shuffled her straight off to the emergency room. By one point last night, her INR was 14. (I once had an INR of 5.3 and Dr. Hot Stuff went nuts. You can imagine how concerned they were with a score of 14!)
She wasn't real coherent, and she was having some incontinence problems.
Today's complaints include double vision (caused by the steroid she's on), a bladder infection and dehydration. After several transfusions of platelets, IV fluids and antibiotics and some oral diabetes meds, she's coming around.
She's out of Intensive Care, and in a step-down unit in the Heart wing of Edward Hospital. With any luck, they'll be sending her home after her radiation treatment tomorrow. I'll be heading out there first thing tomorrow morning to spend the day with her.
I'm so glad she's here and not in Florida.
Thanks for all the prayers and kind words. They really do help, you know.
