Quick update

Reporting live from room E803 at Emory Hospital in Atlanta is Curt, her husband. Sandi is progressing well in accordance with the doctors plans, although she is glad there are no live cameras on this news report. The stem cell transplant took place last Wednesday, so she is on Day +7 and clearly in "the basement" phase (as the doctors refer to this stage where her white blood counts are essentially zero). As you can imagine, she is quite sick – some days are better than others. We have seen a noticeable improvement recently but we are not out of the woods. On Sunday night, they rushed her into an emergency CAT scan due to concerns from the severe headaches – the results were negative. On Monday night, she had a fall, which is a major concern here – no injury except for a few colorful bruises. She is not happy that they have now installed an alarm on her bed so that everyone knows if she tries to get up without help. Yesterday they sent her off for chest X-rays due to severe coughing and concern for pneumonia – the results were negative. Today we are battling a fever. Every day seems to bring a new challenge. Nevertheless, we are grateful for the doctors and nursing staff, and especially grateful for special friends that show up every day to serve as caregivers so that I can go to work. Thanks for your continued prayers. God is good.
