Today was a big day for Kristen. She had a bone marrow biopsy and a lumbar puncture (spinal tap). She also received a chemo drug in her spine. She is a bit sore tonight, I'll stay on top of the tylenol and the anti-nausia drugs seem to be working for the moment. Hoping for a quiet night.
We are at a stand still. Waiting to hear from the insurance company. In the mean time we are hoping that Kristen can stay in remission. It is fustrating. Kristen is ready for the transplant. She reached a remission which is a miracle in and of itself. As of now, no one quite knows what to do. More chemo to hold her over until we get the approval? Take a chance and wait another week or two? When I say I am sick of waiting, I really mean that. I am sick. I feel weak. I am about ready to steal Kristen's anti-nausia drugs. I need something to rid myself of this pit in my stomach and the pounding in my head. I was so excited to come from the hospital to finally sleep in my own bed, but now I can't even sleep. Something else that makes me sick... I wanted to post some more pictures of Kristen but seems all I have these days is pictures of her in the hospital, sitting in the car riding home from the hospital or sitting up in her bed. That's it. That's all we do. Go to the hospital. Come home. Go back to the hospital.
As I look at it...Tomorrow has to be better. Once you hit bottom there is no where else to go but UP.
