Feb. 8, 2011

Somara was in the hospital for 8 days last week.  She was extremely sick and they could not get an iv started.  Her Dr has decided that it is time to put a port-a-cath in.  It should be an outpatient procedure.  I am trying to get it scheduled for the end of this week or the beginning of next week. Somara has got a lot going on in the next few weeks.  She will have the port put in, she is going to have a sleep study done, and she is going to have another surgery.  The surgery is to have her tonsils and adenoids removed and to put in a third set of ear tubes.  The doctor is pretty sure that he is going to admit her into the ICU for a few days following the surgery and then see how she is doing.  He informed me that she will be at serious risk for infection so it will be a tough recovery for her.  Please say some prayers that the next couple of weeks goes good for her and that she will recover quickly.  She is also going to start iv ig infusions to help boost her immune system.  She will go into the office every month for the infusion. More to come...
