A quick note before I run off to the hospital for the day ... The FM is doing well this weekend. Her anemia has improved with four transfusions of blood, but the numbers still seem to drift downward. We think this is a side effect of an immunosuppression drug called Campath (sp?), administered monthly until about six weeks ago when they stopped it.
She should be coming home on Monday if all stays well. The hospital needs to set up a regular dialysis regimen for her before she's released. She'll have to be dialyzed three times a week until another donor can be found, which won't happen until the polyoma virus gets cleared from her system.
However, she's feeling much better, and last night we even had dinner and a movie. I brought "Hitch" on DVD (they have a player in her room), and we both had a blast. Today I'm surprising her with "Bewitched", which she has wanted to see since it came out last summer. She sends her greetings to all of you and her thanks for your prayers and kind thoughts.Sphere It View blog reactions
