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.)

Living large on 3 North

Patio's still in the hospital, but feeling a lot better than the night she arrived. (Which means, not surprisingly, that Mike and I are feeling much better, too.) She had a crushing headache and a bit of nausea on Sunday when she was admitted, but the headache has pretty much gone and they're treating the nausea, so that's better, too, and her appetite is pretty good. She had an MRI of her brain, which didn't show anything (there's a joke there somewhere) so they'll keep poking around and looking for the cause of what seems to be an infection.

Tomorrow she's getting an ultrasound to see if maybe the bile duct is partially blocked, and she'll get another blood transfusion, which the doctor says will make her feel much better. And Thursday night or Friday she'll probably get her weekly chemo treatment. She may go home Friday, depending on how she's doing.

Thanks for your good thoughts. We'll keep you posted...
