Lorelei visits her transplant doctor today
This week at home has been wonderful (compared to the "prison" hospital.) Lorelei completed the infusion of antibiotics via IV to finish off her blood infection for good. She has stayed home mostly because leaving the house requires her to wear a mask. That mask fogs up her glasses which she has to wear instead of her contacts because the chemo would have melted her contacts to her eyes.. She's hoping the doctor will allow her to wear contacts again soon. And the best news of all (to Lorelei) is that she gets to have her central line (phoresis catheter) removed tomorrow!
We'll learn the plan today regarding what's next. How will they determine if she's officially in remission? What's the recommendation for radiation?
Lorelei is ready to be DONE with medical stuff and feeling stronger so she can begin her internship with the Thunder. She's got work to do! (The photo here is of Lorelei with Debbie Williams of Thunder Community Relations.)
Will post more soon.
