Met with Dr Iyer today for chemo options. It looks like she will qualify for the clinical trial for gemcitabine, xeloda and avastin. If insurance gives the ok, we will start next week. Please continue to pray for her. Thanks again for all of your support.
Mom is home!!!!!! Yay! She is tired but finally home. Life is so much better with her in it. I am so thankful she is doing better. Now to set up an appointment with the oncologist to discuss clinical trials.
We are hoping for mom to come home tomorrow. Please pray that all goes well and she can come home to us. She will be on oxygen for a while and she will be on antibiotics for a while but we are glad she is still with us. Her new stent seems to be working so far. They finally identified one of the bacterias from her bile duct but no luck on the one from her sputum yet. Thanks for the prayers and virtual hugs
Dear Hopefuldaughter, that is better news as they would not move her to a unit if they didn’t feel she was having some improvement. Those infections are just the worst. Hoping for still more improvement tomorrow!
Thanks everyone. She is finally out of ICU and on a regular unit now. They still cannot identify the bacteria they found in her bile duct or in her sputum. They have used 4 different antibiotics now. She is drinking liquids finally and her jaundice is clearing up. One day at a time……
