We weathered the storm in Atlanta so much better than others, so we are very grateful. Our biggest problem was dealing with the 15 hour power outage, but it was a good justification to restart our fireplace early this season.
Sandi’s recovery continues to march forward. Some days are better than others but the trend is very encouraging. She is much more active around the house, eating well, starting to walk more and gaining strength for every day activity. They have transferred her care back to Dr. Goldsweig, who is very patient oriented, so we are pleased – plus he is located at Emory Johns Creek just a few miles from our home. We were thrown a curve ball on Monday when the test results came back showing a concerning trend in her white blood count (WBC) – they have returned back to lower levels than before she was discharged from the hospital – while not abnormal, it is still quite concerning. This means that she is highly susceptible to infections and needs to return to a semi-quarantine state. After conferencing, the doctors determined the best course of action was to initiate a growth factor protocol to enhance WBC. We will be visiting the hospital twice a week for a simple injection. They had discussed readmitting her back into the hospital, but fortunately decided against that course of action. So two steps forward and one step back, but certainly heading in the right direction. Thanks again for all your prayers and support.
