Although last week's yellow eyes & face seemed to clear up in 24 hours, it has returned with a vengeance all over. She called her onc yesterday & was sent for blood work & CT today. Her liver(bile duct) is blocked & liver enzymes are extremely high. Don't know much more at this time as she just got a room & is waiting for a doctor, but speculation is that she will need a liver stent. Will update you when I know more.

Please send prayers & good vibes, my friends.

Luv,

Wolfen

 

I spoke to her this afternoon. The stent procedure was done early this morning. Although she is feeling far from great, because it done by going down the throat ?(news to me), she had the option of going home this evening, which she chose as she will be more comfortable there. She is, of course, still having the terrible side effects of last week's chemo. Her onc left word that she is to resume chemo ASAP. As things progress, she may be nearing the end of her rope at withstanding chemo. Only she can make that decision.

She asked me to thank each of you for your continued prayers & good thoughts. When she is feeling up to it, she will post.

Luv,

Wolfen

I'm so glad that she is being taken care of, though it saddens me that she is back in the hospital.

My prayers are with her, along with virtual hugs.

Father God, we ask you to be with our friend today, as she faces yet another trial. Help her doctors and nurses provide the care that will correct this issue and allow her to be with her family and friends. 

We know that all thar happens is part of your plan and we trust that you will be with us during our difficult times and help us to grow and learn. And we ask that you open our hearts to your love, fill our hearts and teach us to love the people you have brought into our lives.

Thank you for today and for this board and for all those who care for and support us.

Amen

I hope that a stent can relieve the blockage. Sometimes it is all just too much.  I just hope that she can find some comfort. 

Peace to you both.  I will be thinking of you.

It all sounds petty yuk. I am glad that they are allowing her to go home. She has to travel, if I remember correctly, so I hope she is comfortable on her way home.

Continued prayers and thoughts going her way (and yours, Wolfen).

Thanks for the update.  Thinking of you and your daughter and wishing you the very best.  You're such a tough cookie.  You've had such a difficult time of it these past few years.  So much worry and heartache.  Stay strong.

She went home on the night of the 16th. Feeling really tired & of course, still suffering from severe stomach cramps(her constant side effect from Irinotecan). She is on morphine for that.

Right about now, she is at the onc's office to decide if & when to have next chemo. Will talk to her later tonight.

I guess she doesn't feel up to posting, yet.

Luv,

Wolfen

There are so many here that have followed both you and JBG and have genuine concern and love for you both. I wish her comfort and healing. I wish you that extraordinary mother's ability to bend, but not break.

Peace. ~ Cynthia
