Good news, of a sort, Susan was not neutropenic, didn't require transfusion or isolation. The blood results were not in when I left the hospital last night, which is why my message was guarded. She got IV fluids during the night and is feeling better this morning. Yesterday, the doctor mentioned a feeding tube because of her huge, rapid weight loss(she has lost twenty or more pounds in the couple of weeks she was home from the hospital), and her inablity to take in nutrition or fluids on her own. If this is done, it will be temporary.
Please thank everyone for expressions of caring and concern. It means so much to both of us.
