Default Fran Update 18 October 10

Good morning everyone.

Just a quick update before I jump into the shower and drag my rear end back to the hospital. I pretty much mean drag because I just can't seem to get more than three hours of sleep a night. The cobwebs do clear after I've been up a couple of hours for which I am thankful but for the first hour of my day it feels as if my knees are going to buckle. Thankfully such a sensation is of short duration. My theory that when one's body gets tired enough that one will go to sleep has yet to work, at least up to this point. Hmmm.....

The hope and somewhat expectation of the physicians that Fran's temperature would break yesterday has not materialized as it rose yesterday and again last night past the 101 F level at which point they give her Motrin which thankfully brings it back down.

I am sure her oncologist is now going to do a bone marrow biopsy the results of which Fran and I are both dreading although our fears are unspoken even to each other. Time will tell. Hopefully her fevers will break today.

Hope everyone has a great beginning to a new week and although it is a broken record, I assure everyone on the site who is ailing or who has asked for prayers for whatever reason, remains on my own list.

As always, thank you from the bottom of my heart for you continuing prayerful support.

Todd

Todd,
I hate the thought of Fran having to go through yet another procedure, especially something like a bone marrow biopsy. But it looks like they've exhausted all the less invasive possibilities. My thoughts and prayers are with you both as always. Please get some rest soon.

I'm sorry to hear her fever is back and the bone marrow biopsy is needed. I know how hard it can be to sleep when so much is on your mind. I hope and pray that today brings better news for Fran.
