Cindy is coming home from the hospital. We are very grateful. Her hematocrit levels are still very low but through the night they started building themselves up and the doctors have decided against a transfusion. Her white counts have reached a good level. She is weak and tired and still having trouble breathing deeply, because of the pneumonia. But they are giving her oxygen and she gets to go home.
Thursday was to be treatment 6 of chemo. They will hold off one week and allow a little more time to heal. For those who have been through this it is not unusual. It will be good to allow her body the extra week to recover before going through this again.
Cindy wants all to know that while she cannot talk to each of you, she loves you all and thinks of you daily. It is difficult for her to talk on the phone and often she is downstairs, away from the house remodel noise and does not have a phone in that bedroom. She is not ignoring you, she just can't hear the phone nor is able to really talk much. But she loves you all and knows that you care. I have passed along all the emails and notes I have received. Thank you all.
Let's all keep prayers said that she will continue to heal and be strong for the next treatment.
