Looking forward to next week

Mom slept well last night and looks fresher today. She's recovering well from the surgery. When we sponged and changed her today, she wasn't in pain anymore. YAY!

She still has the mystery fever - dunno why. Dr Rajbans has ordered urine culture and chest x-ray to check on her infections. She's still getting antibiotics for both. Hopefully it will clear up by this week.

Dr. Puru will give mom the intravenous immunoglobulin on Monday. The wonder drug lenalidomide has arrived, should be out of customs by tomorrow. Dr. Puru plans to start this next week too. This is a chemo drug so mom's immunity needs to be strengthened before she can take this.

Our super maid Robena has recovered from her own flu and fever. She's at hospital with mom now but she'll be going back home soon. We don't want to expose mom to any kind of germs for too long.

On that note, I think it is better for visitors and well wishers to stay away for one more week. Let mom get stronger with the immunoglobulin first. Then come and visit. For now, we musn't risk any infection.
