Day 2.5 - Another trip to the Hospital

Another long day at the Arlington Cancer Center and the hospital, but at least now we are back on schedule with Sheila's chemo. Today after waiting to see the doctor he sent us over to the hospital so that they could put some dye in her Pic-Line and X-ray it to see if it was blocked or if the blockage was just in the vein. It turned out that the vein itself is blocked  but the line it still OK. Knowing that, they reconnected the chemo backpack, did the infusion for the other kind of chemo (red colored), gave her a blood thinning injection and sent us home. Today was the last day for the infusion of red chemo and her backpack will run until next Friday. We have to go back to the ACC Saturday and Sunday for blood thinning injections and then see the doctor on Monday. Its been a trying couple of days of treatments.

  1. Been thinking about you both...had emergency run to hospital for Pete Monday...all is better, he is on antibiotics and so weary. Radiation soon but no feeding tube so that is a good thing. Praying for you both every day.
