+98 – The good, the bad and the ugly

web link The last week has been pretty eventful.  Friday Kimbell’s counts were ok.  We met with Dr. Tolar about our upcoming trip home and he answered a lot of our questions which was good.  The one thing I love about Dr. Tolar is he has always been honest with us and has never sugar-coated anything.  He congratulated Kimbell on a successful transplant, and how she has handled herself through all of this but reminded her that she is not out of the woods.  He then proceeded to tell her how important her mask is (thank you!!), how susceptible she is, and how he has had patients care flighted back to MN across the country intubated (life support) and he has lost them.  This may sound harsh but when you consider she wasn’t supposed to make it this far two years ago it kind of puts the last four months in perspective and he is not about to lose her now.

Today Kimbell had her first bone marrow biopsy since she got her transplant.  They had to intubate her because she is still throwing up so she wasn’t happy about that but seemed ok.  Then the pain hit so she took some oxy and has been asleep since.  Her counts today were again a little lower than yesterday.

Please pray that they figure out why her counts continue to go down, that she can get blood soon – she is hanging out right above the transfusion level and is miserable, and that she feels better.
