posting this from the iPhone so forgive the errors. Two nights ago, lori had a fever and pain spike. With only 20k platelets, her immune system was way off, so we went to the ER. She was checked in quickly and they gave her some dilauded for the pain. Over the next hour, her right leg and knee got worse; rated the leg pain at 9. The dr ordered antibiotics to fight infection, and fortunately by the time the IV arrived, her fever was already down. After the antibiotic infusion, we were given the option of staying or being discharged. Lori wanted to go home, so we did. Since then, she’s been on a steady schedule of taking morphine, dilauded, OxyContin, and ibuprofen. Of corse, that brings back the loopiness, although she’s not too out of it. She can’t drive now though, and she can’t be left alone until she can scale back.
My parents came last week to help out and now lori’s mom is here to help this week. Next week, I’m on leave so we’re good to go during that time.
Today, Lori had full body scans done as well as a blood draw for another platelet check. We don’t have those results in yet. At the ER, her platelets were at 19k.
