Update on Nancy

Thanks to Glo and Annie for telling all my blogging friends that Nancy got her blood transfusion last night. I tried to, but blogger wouldn't let me! Her lips were looking pink again and she was feeling a little better.

I was at the hospital in time to talk to her hematologists (Thank you Anni for telling me how to say and spell this!! ) Nancy's immune systems is attacking her good cells again and she has hemolytic anemia. It all stems from her LUPUS. The treatment will be perisone for the time being. The dental work is on hold for now.

The last time in 2003 it attacked her blood platelets, they fixed this and then it attacked her lungs in fall of 2004. This is when we had 6 months of chemo therapy in 2005. The lungs are better and now it has attacked her blood again.

Thanks to you all for your prayers!!! I sure could feel them today!! I won't post until later in the week. I will be going back and forth to the hospital each day! You know what, this wears you out more then a full days work!!
Thanks again for being so caring.

Carolyn...you know that if I can do anything for you, I will! No problem.

I'm just relieved to hear that Nancy is doing somewhat better. And I pray it all continues to go well.

You're always in my thoughts and prayers dear one.

Sorry to hear about the Lupus is attacking again but happy that things are better after the blood transfusion. You rest when you can. Yes, I know its tiring. And you're stressed which makes you tired, too.
Take care, my friend. Blessings to Nancy.

Grams, sorry to hear that Nancy is having problems and is in the hospital. Will be praying for her lupus to go into remission. I know several people who have had it. Both are in remission and have been for many years. Praying for this to happen to Nancy, too! But, right now, I know it's tough on her. And,tough on Mom as well! Praying for your stamina.
