Teresa's husband here. Just updating that my dear bride has been in the hospital again, pretty much since her last post on Wednesday. That evening, when I arrived home, she was in a HUGE amount of pain, very nauseated, and had a fever of 102. So, back to our apparent Home-away-from-Home we trod.
It has been a crazy end of the week, with various levels of frustration and disappointments in assessment, care, and prognoses. I'm sure Teresa will give more info on that later. The unfortunate bottom line is that her surgeon wants to remove her port-a-cath (her only IV access) and give everything time to sort of "reset." This is somewhat disconcerting to us because she has almost nothing as far as peripheral veins in case she needs IV fluids or medication. But...God has brought us this far, and since He has it ALL in His hands anyway, we take solace knowing that He will see us on a little farther.
We would surely appreciate you joining us in prayer: for patience to deal with a system that is still behind the curve with this illness; for guidance in how to be constructively pro-active in her care; and for there to be no problems while she is without her port. Thanks to you all.
