Phoebe is being released from the hospital tomorrow. She has done pretty well with this round of chemo, but it was discovered that she has unrinary tract infection. I am glad they finally figured out what was bothering her.
She had complained that her bottom was hurting for about 2 weeks but we could never get a definitive culture. She has been on IV antibiotics for 2 days and she will come home on IV antibiotics for the first time. She will come home with her port still accessed and a home-health nurse will come each day for the next three days to administer the broad-spectrum antibiotics. Apparently this strain of infection is very resistant to antibiotics so she will receive a few different types in order to knock it out.
Please pray that the antibiotics will work quickly and that her counts don’t get squashed while the infection persists. She needs those white cells for a few more days!
Thank you all for praying for us and thinking of us. It will be nice to be together again after a week apart.
