Abby's Journey Archive

Back again

Well, as we are learning time and again, nothing is predictable. Today we discovered that the "bug bites" that were slowly multiplying on Abby's body were actually chicken pox. It's a long story that I don't have time to write about right now, but basically the bottom line is that Abby is back in the hospital again.

They are delivering antiviral medications to prevent her from getting a secondary internal infection from the pox. She is feeling fine...not really complaining about itching or anything. They want to observe her at least through Saturday. Right now the plan is to resume radiation on Monday (which means she will finish on Thursday instead of Tuesday of next week).

We did meet with our oncologist about the separate diagnosis today (which is another long story that I can't write about now). However, the two doctors didn't reach a consensus on the diagnosis so among other things, we will be getting a third opinion about the diagnosis.

Sorry to be so brief, but I have to get Abby's stuff together to bring to the hospital. Thank you for your prayers. We are certain that God is continuing to direct us where we need to be and your prayers are a great comfort to us.
