Abby was admitted to the surgery floor of our hospital. The Oncology floor feels like a second home, this place is a foreign land. We crave familiar things even more when we are under stress. Hopefully they will move us to the "right" floor soon.
Abby's lungs are still terribly congested and she is constantly coughing. A pulmonary consult has been ordered for the morning. Our favorite lung doctor is out of the country and Abby needs help soon.
When Abby was in surgery the doctor was able to get sputum samples and did a biopsy. The sample is already growing cooties. Not surprising but not what her oncologist was hoping for. While I am faithfully praying for healing, I knew green snot was not a good thing. Abby's doctors have watched her go through so much. In a way it is sweet how hard they are searching for a easier to treat diagnosis.
For now it is just a waiting game. It is impossible to treat Abby's cancer, intracranial hypertension, asthma and her new "lung problem" in the ways that they normally would. Routine medications for one problem make the other problems worse.
Thank you for your prayers and encouraging messages. I was tired today but knowing so many were praying helped me feel peaceful in the midst of this trial. You are such a blessing to our family.
Abby is finally awake. I can't wait to read her your messages.
