Another Outpatient visit turns into an Inpatient Admission

Lizzy was scheduled for an outpatient chemo treatment today in Cincy.  When they checked her blood counts, it was determined that she also needed a platelet transfusion and a blood transfusion.  She received the chemo treatment and the platelet transfusion.  However, after the platelet transfusion, they checked her temperature and she had spiked a fever.

The fever set off a chain reaction of events because once a fever happens, you have one hour to get antibiotics started. Fortunately she was already at the clinic, but unfortunately only one port had been accessed.  So, she had to be de-accessed, new numbing cream put on her port, and then re-accessed for both lumens of the port.

We are scrambling to re-arrange everything in order for me to go to Cincy this afternoon with clothes, toiletries, etc.  I want to get there before the snow hits this evening.

Can I ask you to pray for the following:

  1. No infection for Lizzy
  2. No more fevers for Lizzy
  3. I get all the logistics worked out this afternoon
  4. Strength for Lori and me – we are both mentally and emotionally exhausted
  5. My son/daughter-in-law fly back safely to Colorado tonight

Thank you.  I’ll update as I know more.
