Ok, well apart from a strange blip when her temp shot back up yest eve for around an hour and then came back down to where it was for some bizarre reason that has everyone scratching their heads at, Andrea has remained stable yest afternoon and overnight.
Just been given the results of yesterdays tests and yes we have even more positive news !!!!, her white blood cell count has come down a bit which is first time since the severe infection took hold and that with the news that the shadows on her lung x-rays have also reduced, means now for defo that the infection has stopped spreading and is indeed reducing!, no-one could be 100% sure that the temp drop alone meant this but now they are certain.
They are now hoping that drastic measures mentioned before may now not be needed (fingers crossed!) and that time itself along with the meds and interventions will be the healer.
I stayed here till around 1am, but failed to get any sleep at all when I got home, I think my body has got into a pattern of going and going until I drop and then sleep well for a night etc, then start over again, never mind, it was a good job that FeeJay was working nights and kept me company! Or mind you I think I was helping her keep awake!!! â€“ so thank you for the company.
Sorry snowygirl that I didnâ€™t text you, we were both hoping you were sleeping soundly!
Sorry for late update, had to come here briefly first thing to see docs, then go into work for around 6hrs, as I think they have forgotten who I am over last 2 weeks, and have a new multi-million pound contract starting on Mon that I have overseen since the beginning and had to re-brief everyone on who needs to do what etc, then Iâ€™ve come straight back here from work.
A tired but happy & dare I say optimistic? Alex x
