Default Fran Update 28 Sep 10

Just got home from the hospital.

Still no answers. Tomorrow they remove the port and will culture that. Her temp still goes from normal to 102.9, then back down to around 100 then up then down...all without any Tylenol or any medication whatsoever.

Evidently they aren't even going to start antibiotics unless and until they know what they have to treat and use the specific antibiotic for the job.

We're praying it's the port but if it's not, it could be the infection is the cancer in her blood. I can't even fathom that possibility as that would be horrendous and quite possibly insurmountable.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your good wishes and prayers.

Will let you know as soon as I have some info but that might be a few days, I just don't know.

Love to you all,

Todd

Default Fran Update 28 Sept. 10

Todd, I have thought about Fran all day, as I suspect many across the country have. I pray that the Lord will hold her steady so that the doctors can figure out what the problem is. I fervently hope that it's the port. My friend, Nancy, had that same problem.

Oh Todd, you and Fran have been in my thoughts all day today too.
I'm praying the doctors will find the source of the problem and be able to treat it. Strength is sent to you both, hang in there....

Ended up getting about 3.5 hours of sleep last night. That's been the norm of late and it's wearing me down a wee bit.

Although I am not a maudlin type individual, nevertheless you have no idea how sustaining your magnificent words of love and encouragement are for both Fran and me. I'm heading out in a little while to run up to the hospital. Have to get back to work and finish all my chores which explains the brevity of this post.

You all are like family and btw, are among the first one or two to learn of any changes in Fran's condition. That is how much all of you mean to me.

Will let you know again this evening how the day progressed.

Love to all

TDH

You are both still in our daily thoughts and prayers, and we hope that they resolve this quickly so that Fran can start moving along that path again.

Love to the both of you,

Alan & Katrina
