Once again things change rapidly and we just follow along with the chaos.
Yesterday Julie went to see Frakes at 830 to say wassup and that ended up turning into a shot of nupagin along with some hydration. By 1230 she returned home stoked about missing the morning and having swallowed a ton of news. In that short time at the office a call came from the COH letting Julie know that she was checking in on Saturday, this Saturday, like tomorrow, well was two days away when the news was passed along, but either way Saturday 6/22. This was of course shocking. Not for long though. Later a call came that said a heart MRI had to be done by the end of the day because the results would determine if they could proceed on Saturday, even though everyone had cleared Julie to head up regardless of what the crap on her heart is. Oh and it got bumped up to Saturday because the regimen had changed and was now an 11 day inpatient chemo rather than the outpatient or 7 day round.
Some scrambling happened, a few more phone calls, and by 445 the heart MRI was scheduled for Friday at 1030am and COH said that check in would now be Sunday 6/30. Roller Coaster. Everything seemed satisfactory now, donor was once again lined up, and Julie was set to get a new start on life and a free Slurpee on 7/11.
That all changed too. Now check in is Monday 7/1 and the MRI moved to 3pm today. So again this morning Julie popped in to the oncologist at 830 for some blood work and hydration only to return home around 1130, just in time to take the girls in for haircuts at noon. Right after that Julie bounced to head down to La Jolla for an MRI around 215 and promptly returned from that at 615. Sweet day and not over either.
At the forever MRI a cardiologist stayed present with the techs monitoring the whole scan. Right after he called Frakes who in turn called Julie. Good news is the thing in her heart is a blood clot of sorts. Bad news is there is fear of it breaking up and moving into her lungs causing issues. Oh and I don’t think I mentioned but Julies liver functions are high again, that’s why the hydration, just FYI. So Frakes told Julie she has to go to the ER tonight to conduct some tests that if she does not pass will require her to stay for who knows how long. Really hoping she passes.
Between the MRI and leaving for the ER testing we were able to take the girls out for sushi and ice cream to celebrate Presley finishing kindergarten and having a stellar report card. So that was nice.
Now Julie is gone, I’m finishing this nonsense, and then heading to work. What a life we live.
