for Pat Adair, and the people who love her...

Our beloved Pat got some shocking news recently, and we're off and running on a mysterious medical adventure. Not an adventure we would have picked, but we're off just the same... (If you're new to the blog, start here.)

Familiar faces

I'm really sorry to report that Mom's back in the hospital as I write this. We had a really nice Easter lunch with Mike, Mary and Brooke (Courtney was competing at a dance meet in Seattle,) and Mom was tired but happy. We sat outside and had a delicious meal. Towards the end of the day, though, she seemed to get weaker, and her headache went from bad to splitting. She was due for another blood thinner injection today, Monday, so we scheduled an appointment with the doctor. He found that she had a fever, low blood pressure, and elevated heart rate - pretty much what happened Friday. He didn't know why it's happening, so he suggested a stay in the hospital, where she can be watched closely. He also ordered a brain MRI to see if they can figure out the headache.

So after a long wait in admissions, she's back to 3 North, the oncology ward at John Muir in Walnut Creek. She's too sick to care, but I found it comforting to be back where she got such good care when she first found out she had cancer in January.

Keep checking in. I'll be posting more information as we get it. Thanks for your love and good wishes. They mean a lot.


Here's a collage of photos from Easter. They're of Brooke, who's 14, and her mom, Mary (Mike's family) - click on it for a larger view:
