The doctor has been tracking my very elevated platelet level. The most desirable explanation was that I had a localized infection – I had no temperature or signs of infection. Today I had a CT scan and they found an abdominal abscess and they are re-admitting me to the hospital for IV antibiotics and to deal with the abscess. Don’t know how long I’ll be there, don’t know what it will do to our planned upcoming trip. But I sure know this is the best reason my platelets have been through the roof and that I’m getting excellent care for this to have been discovered so quickly. Oh and I miss a chemo since suppressing my immune system while trying to cure an infection makes no sense. Off to register at Inova.
Prayer – Divine one, help Alexa stay in the moment and not “go there” with worst case fears. Stay near her at this difficult time.
