Well folks it has been a few days since Angela has had the strength to post , so I thought I would sub in. I will try to keep it short.....
On Saturday morning , Angela's family was supposed to come over to our house to celebrate Mother's Day. At the last minute, Angela told me she just didn't feel up to it - so we cancelled. At that time we also decided to take a trip to NIH to get some more hydration because we believed that was the cause of her not feeling well. After NIH she felt great! She had a good size dinner and managed to keep her stomach problems at bay!
On Sunday, she was scheduled to go back to NIH for some labs and other stuff. Unfortunately, I had to work, so her Dad took her. At NIH she got MORE hydration and finished her lab work. Angela was back at our house around 4PM. Her Mom and Dad hung out for server hours until I got home from work. Angela spent the rest of the night resting on the coach. As we were getting ready for bed she noticed she had a temp. of 101.9. We all know what that means.....back to the hospital. The nurses got us all checked in and ran more blood work on her, gave her more hydration, and other broad-based antibiotics to fight whatever was causing her elevated temp.
At 6AM this morning, her temp rose to 104! But otherwise she was feeling fine, other than running to the bathroom. The doctors came in around 10am and told her that her WBC (white blood cells) were really low again and we would be here until Wednesday/Thursday or until her wbc's were at acceptable levels.
Otherwise, Angela is spending her time here at NIH resting and getting medications. Her family will be visiting her tonight.
We hope to be home soon.
