Thought I'd start a new thread for this seeing as its not for me specifically.

taking over from here

Marian was admitted to hospital last night with signs her kidneys were failing due to the Chemo treatment. She has had the flu the last couple of days and that may have been the final straw for her body because the last set of tests she had indicated that everything was going well. Any prayers for her are appreciated.

thanks
DrF

Dr F,

I am really sorry to hear about your wife. I'm not one for praying so maybe the sound of a strange voice calling on the Lord for your wife's recovery along with some comfort for you, will catch his attention. I can't imagine what life would be like without my Linda and therefore I can only imagine what you must be going through.

shes doing OK for now, she had a reaction to the antibiotics she was on, so they changed them, she still can't come home for another night and I think she is missing the house and kids. other than that we are having trouble getting info out of the doctors, either there is nothing wrong other than the infection or there is something else going on they aren't telling us about just yet.

update:

She is still in hospital, the doctors can't find the infection. They think it may be in the brain so they are talking about doing a lumbre punch. She really doesn't want that. She did have a headache today but it started to subside this afternoon and she is fairly sure it was becasue there was something in her dinner she's not suposed to eat (gluten). I Pray she doesn't need a lumbre punch and they check her kidneys out before discharging her. Aparently the chemo damages kidneys.

Her neutrophils (baby white blood cells) are very low and they need to be much higher before she can start her next round of chemo tommorow.

thanks for everyones prayers.

Update:

prayers have been answered. The hospital kicked her out today without the lumbrepunch. :jump:

They gave her a whole heap of antibiotics to take so with anyluck she will be able to start her next round of chemo next week.

Thank you everyone.

drf that's great news and proof that prayer does work!

I really and truly feel for what the two of you are going for, my dad had cancer and it's a rough thing for anyone to go through. You and your wife will be added to our prayers too.

Fantastic DRF, but please, whilst everyone is thanking god for everything he did and proof of his great works and all, please, how about a little bit of recognition for the all important human input by everyone concerned?? Doctors, nurses, staff at the hospital and all ancillary services.

Whilst the doctors may at times be making heaps of moolah, I can pretty well assure you that the nurses and everyone else don't, and the vast majority of them do care.

It must be a thankless task at times, with probably way too many 'losses' in the critical care field which must also be emotionally draining.

And when they finally DO get a 'win' in the critical care, all the credit seems to go elsewhere..................

You have my prayers and Marian has my prayers. These are times of life I don't fully understand but accept. The final decision is not ours to make.
