Hurry Up and Wait!

Penny's day started kinda rough. Headache, slight fever. Didn't sleep very well. She loved seeing ALL her visitors on Sunday, but I think she partied a bit too much.

We have been told that one of the medicines she's been getting for her blood count is adversely affecting her liver causing her to appear jaundiced. (sort of yellow looking skin) That medicine has been replaced. Turns out the liver plays a very important role once chemo treatments begin. The liver actually metabolizes the chemo.

Only visitors today were family, including my brother, Rogers.

As of 3:30 PM we are still anxiously awaiting final bone marrow test results from Nashville.

Penny says love, love, love to everybody!!!

Me too!


  1. Keith & I are really thinking about you all.
    If there's anything we can do to help, PLEASE let us know.
    I know the house will have to be scrubed down & disinfected before they'll let Penny go home.
    I'd be glad to be part of the work-party.
    Love, Anne Lacoste

  2. I have been suggesting that folks email or send a card to send good thoughts and good wishes so she doesnt get tired out talking.

  3. Thanks Mary Beth-that is a great idea. Thanks again for all that you and Liz and everyone else is doing. It means so much. We pretty much killed your Chili you brought over the other night. It was DELISH!!!!!
