A Quiet Morning

It's been a quiet, yet productive, morning in Springfield. Mom bathed and washed her hair. Dr. Shayuk (internal medicine) was in, as was Dr. Mink (oncology). The report from Mom's Echo yesterday showed no blood clots in her heart. Her platelets jumped from 66,000 yesterday to 79,000 this morning. :) And her glucose was lower than usual before breakfast.

The PTT test this morning had favorable results, so her Bivalirudin has been increased. They will do another PTT in two hours. Dr. Mishkal will be Dr. Goswami's temporary replacement today. He should be in soon.

I would like to reiterate that Mom's cancer is stable and has been responding well to treatment. The issues she is dealing with now will probably have to be dealt with indefinitely. Because of her cholangiocarcinoma, her clotting factors are unstable. Until the cancer is gone, she will have to battle clotting/thinning of her blood. :(

Thank you for your prayers, thoughts, and good vibes. Mom needs them and truly appreciates them.
Please continue to pray, think good thoughts, and send good vibes.
