Hi all thanks for all your support today she is A LOT better the doc says more than likely she can go home in a couple of days still not much of an apatite but doing better on the oral meds.

Today you can tell she is getting much better, still hasn't got much of a apatite and has aches and pains all over. They haven't found out where her infection was they kinda think it was in her port, but since she was on antibiotics before she was admitted it might of squed ( forgive the spelling) the results. There taking her off the iv's and starting oral meds if she does well they will likley sent her home in two days !

Today is Saturday and things are better, Mag is far from ready to dance but she doesn't look or feel as bad as yesterday. Still fighting a fever, and a cough, haven't found out what is causing the infection, testing goes on. She's eating a little more, and walking around a little. Can't say enough about the Drs. and overall care she is being given, but part of that is Mag she never met a stranger.More to come thanks everyone........................Bob

Not so good news

Well Tuesday Mag got her second chemo therapy and it was down hill from there,she came home and was nauseated with chills and fever, Wednesday she ran a fever and had aches and pains, Thursday her fever was much higher and head ache with pain through her body.
We went to the E.M. and was admitted,our hospital not where she has chemo, they don't know what the infection is yet, there doing many cultures, cat scans , mean while she feels really bad.
her eyes are swollen , she just doesn't feel good. We have discussed about if it's worth all she is going thru to "get better" we will change Drs. and hospital, she feels comfortable were she at.
Then we will see were we go from there . Keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Friday fever

Well today was the first time we had a mini hiccup in our chemo treatment, each day after the first session it got a little worse, till Friday afternoon Mag got the chills and was running a little fever ( 100.5) The instructions were to call the Dr. if this happened. Which we did the nurse was very concerned and told us to go to the emergency room NOW! She said that I should be very emphatic and not take no , or please wait from anyone in the ER she even gave me a number of some one that would make sure Mag was taken care of fast.
Well I didn't need to call anyone we walked into the ER told them our problem and were taken directly to a room, before registering or any thing, there were nurses waiting and a Dr. close by , they took x-rays blood was drawn and exam. by the Dr. IV started. The results are that Mag has some pneumonia like symptoms and the beginning of an infection in her lungs. She was administered IV antibiotics and watched for about an hour ( also did a EKG ) Her temp went down the Dr. gave us two antibiotics to take home and told us to force fluids and monitor her temp.
She is resting now her temp is still a little elvated,and she has pain from her operation. I have the highest prays for the hospital staff, everything was done fast and to a high standard. Till next time thank you all.........................Bob

This is why my address is what it is, my dogs are Dolly and Lulu and the yellow truck is a present from Maggie to speed up my recovery when I was sick.
Maggie was feeling good this morning,but toward the afternoon her body was telling her there is something going on, we made oxtail soup,and the smell kinda made her a little queeze, but she was able to rise above it without any medicine, tomorrow her niece is coming from Chicago for a few days.
The big boomers are starting (thunder) as they do in the summer in Florida, till next time sweet dreams to all, ..........................Bob

First day of chemo

Got up this morning at 6:30 to be at hospital for 9:00 a.m . app. at the clinic Mag told me she reached for the alarm clock and her port had twisted, (it's in her right upper chest, under the skin) and she pushed it back, just when she was getting over the pain of it being put in!
Saw the doctor and he confirmed it soooo we had to go back to the hospital and have it turned over, just her luck she had breakfast and couldn't have a anesthetic so they did it with a local, it hurt. That over we went back to the clinic got hooked up no problems, turns out our treatment only lasts an hour,some are there for 8 or more ! thats a good thing ! Home now drinking LOT"S of fluids not feeling to bad ..........

The start

Friday Mag and me went to Halifax med. center, she had a port implanted into her chest for her coming chemo. therapy. Some of you may know she has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer ,was operated on in may for removal of half of her pancreas , which is a good thing.
Right now she has pain from the implant, but her spirits are high, will continue to update.
Please pray for her thanks Bob
