Lung Issue

The results of her scans and x-rays came back to show that her abdomen healed well and her sinus issues have cleared up.  However, a new issue has formed in her lungs.  There is an 11mm mass that has developed since her last chest scan.  It might be a fungal infection or something else.  We do not know yet.  She has labs drawn today that can take up to a week to come back.  These labs would identify a fungal infection.  In the meantime, her doctor will be talking to other physicians about endoscopy to see if that would tell us what it is.

Her WBCs have gone down from 4.5 to 3.6.  Her ANC is hovering between 350 and 400.  Her RBCs are fine today because of the transfusion she received on Friday.  Her platelets crashed again.  We are currently at one hospital getting her kidney function test completed.  From here, we will head to our “home” hospital to get platelets.  We are also waiting to hear about endoscopy or whatever else might happen for her lung issue.  This is certainly something that could set the transplant schedule back.  Please pray for speed in diagnostics or a clearing up of the issue completely.  This is not what we wanted to hear today.  This path is exhausting.
