In the Hospital Again

Hi Everyone--It's Ardie here. I hoped I wouldn't have to write again, but unfortunately Sandra was admitted to the hospital tonight--actually during the wee hours of this morning. As she wrote earlier today, her fever has been going up and down, but was hovering just below the critical point until tonight. It spiked this evening and stayed up so the oncologist on call told her to go to the emergency room.

This emergency visit went better than the last few. She was seen right away and given an isolation room and they did an IV right away to give her antibiotics. Her neutrophils, however, were only at 0.1 which is dangerously low.

Unfortunately, she can't have visitors at the hospital. Please don't send flowers or plants either because of the risk of infection that they can have. I will keep the blog updated until we know more. Just pray that the neutrophil count comes up so she can go home soon.

    Also, thank you Ardie for still updating the blog when Ms. Elgersma can't.
