We got the lovely news today that her infection IS in her blood. To put it nicely, AWWW CRAP!! So, because of that, she now is the proud owner of two new peripheral IV's, another antibiotic, and we said our goodbyes to her PICC line that she has had since February. Good job Dr. Bocks for putting that good line in! It lasted ALOT longer than typical. We are hoping that the new IV's last at least a couple of days so that her blood can be sterilized through the new lines and then we can send her to the cath lab to get another one. grrrrrrrrr. Crappy, but something we have to do since she is still on IV lasix and getting a load of antibiotics. Praying for those lines to hold but will be difficult since some of the antibiotics are so harsh and should really be administered through a stronger line, like a PICC. So, prayer warriors on high alert! Pray for the lines to hold there own, the antibiotics to do their job and fight this infection, and for Lindsay to start feeling better. Speaking of that, thank you all for the great comments about Lindsay's new blog photo. I do have to tell you though that that is not her right now. This is one of Patti's wonderful shots of her from just a few days before transplant. Unfortunately, she is not that happy right now and is just plain wiped out. Trust me, I wish it was!
We had some visitors today and had great visits with them all. Aunt Carole and Uncle Robb stopped by for a while and as always, so good to see! We also had a visit from Becky, Layla, and Zelly Muhammad(flew in today from Arkansas) and Cindy Fogg. We had a yummy dinner with them and it was a great distraction from the day that we had......or should I say, that Lindsay had. ;-) Thank you again! We had a great time.
All for now.
