Jesse has been really sick. She has a horrible cough, that just wont let up. She coughs so hard, that she vomits. So, the last 4 days she has had minimal food. They cannot give her TPN (IV Food) because her billirubin level has increased, which is a sign of liver problems. We were able to get a prescription for codine cough syrup, which helps for a little while. Today she was able to eat a little more. We did have an appt. today with her cardiologist in Scottsdale. Jesse has been blacking out, and the Dr's at PCH thought it was just low hemoglobin. She blacked out again on Sunday, had her hemoglobin checked on Monday, and it wasn't low. So, we new it was a heart issue. He wants to stop her blood pressure med because she more than likely does not have high blood pressure since she has been done with chemo for a few months. So, when we give her the med it dips to low, and she blacks out. We will do a follow up appt in 5 weeks.
We have an out patient appt tomorrow morning, to check her levels. Hopefully she has started to make her own red blood cells and wont need another transfusion. She has been making a few platelets, which is a good sign of recovery.
Please continue to pray for Jesse's health, and for the rest of the family to endure the trials of recovery as we come along side Jesse and help her in every way we can.
Much Love, Team Catron
