Long Day's Hospital Visit Into Night

My sister flew in for a brief visit and the entire family spent the day at the hospital with the First Mate, which is why I couldn't make it to my normal Northern Alliance Radio Network spot today. The FM needed me to go over the lab results with the doctors, who had told her several seemingly contradictory prognoses. The complexity of her case has her wondering what it all means, and we had the opportunity to get a lot of the fog cleared today.

She's doing much better, but the fever is still there and her hemoglobin dropped suddenly two days ago, necessitating another transfusion. Hematology wants to see what happens over the next couple of days whether she continues to have problems in this regard. The FM will probably stay in the hospital now until Monday evening at the earliest -- which displeased her, but is probably necessary.

We'll be heading back tomorrow for a lengthy lunchtime visit, and I'll know more then!

UPDATE: Hey, The Patriette had to hang out at the hospital as well, but for an entirely different reason. Big CQ welcomes to Baby Amy, the Patriettte-ette! Now that's some good news. Kelly is one of the special friends some of us have been lucky to meet through blogging, and the addition to her family makes my day.
