Update

Hello, Just wanted to update about my friend and her PC. She is finally home, for good we hope. She did have another setback a few weeks ago. She had a blood clot right after surgery in December 2012. They put her on coumadim? and never checked levels so she almost crashed. She needed pints of blood (her count was down to 6) along with plasma and red blood cells. The doctor did apologize for that slip up. After another 10 days in the hospital they finally released her. She has a bag for her fistula which is still leaking but has gotten much better. She is eating better and feeling a bit stronger. Next will be her radiation and 2 more rounds of chemo. Then it is wait and see. Hope the rest of you are hanging in there and keep fighting this horrible disease. Linda

Re: Update

Linda,
Thanks for the update. Those of us who invest time on the boards do care and wonder what is happening with people to whom we write. I am glad your friend is doing better and home. She has a terrible disease but it seems a wonderful friend to help her through this. I hope her response to treatment works well and gives her some quality time. Bless you both.
