Molasses

We are currently in the phase of treatment that tests our ability to endure periods of extended boredom. So much of what we do as patients revolves around warring with recurring stupifying monotony punctuated by hyper-intense stressful battles. Good thing Becca is such a good patient and well suited to enjoying what ever pleasures are available.// The only real exitement that we have had over the past couple of days was when she had a reaction to a batch of platelets. About half way through the infusion she began to get a tummy ache, very hot, coughing and wheezing, and just plain agitated. Half hour after the infusion was stopped and a hit of albuterol later, she was back to normal. The Docs ordered a batch of blood and unrine tests to try to determine what it was in her or the platelets that caused the reaction. No news yet, and I have been led to believe that it is unlikely that anything will come of them.// We Hope to see many of you this weekend at the Butterfly Walk.

So good to see you both yesterday! I'm praying her numbers come up so you both can get the heck outta there for a couple days! A change of scenery would do you wonders. I will be up tomorrow afternoon - would be happy to take a shift so you can get out for a bit. Love, RK
