Jenn just heard from the doctor and the biopsies are a mass of diseased, but NORMAL liver cells. No malignancy!!!! Jenn, Scott & Shelby are on the road headed home. She called to have me log on to the blog to let you all know. When she lands at home I'm sure she'll blog more. But for now, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU !!!!
We are getting SPRUNG! The biopsy itself could have caused the fever, or she could have a virus, or it could be ????? She does have to continue the IV meds at home until 10 p.m. tomorrow night. We'll get a call on what her culture results are. If they grow something, then the IV meds will be continued longer; if not, she'll be done and the PICC line will get pulled on Friday by home health. Yippee! After her 1 p.m. dose of Vanco, we're outta here! Hopefully we can get home before the storms hit our area.
No biopsy results :-(. Those could take a week - sigh. They'll call us with those.
The night was uneventful, thank goodness. No fever as of last evening when it spiked to 103. She has had quite a bit of pain on her right side, especially in her shoulder area. They did go through quite a bit of muscle for the biopsy, so that will just take time to feel better. She did not feel that her pain was enough that she needed anything for it, although she did say it was a "6" on a scale of 1-10. The attending doctor should be coming in soon and let us know the game plan and biopsy results if they have some. I sure hope the plan is to go back home. I'm sure home on IV antibiotics, but that's o.k. HOME is where we want to be...
