Scary times

Daughter had a collapse at home: pain, couldn't breathe, went bright white.  Took her to hospital and she had another episode in the car.  It was very scary, and I was on the verge of pulling over to call an ambulance.  It didn't help we were driving into the city in rush hour.

Anyway, by the time we got there she was feeling better.  They still kept her overnight and scanned her to check her organs, but there wasn't any evidence of anything that had caused it.  Some of her bloods were a bit raised though.  She's been sent home and we have to keep a close eye on her.

It was scary.

I am pretty certain that whatever it was might show up again.  Over the past year I've learned that pain usually transpires to be something.  It doesn't just disappear never to be an issue again :-(

We are still waiting for an appointment to see a liver specialist for second potential condition she has.

Rough times again, and I'm due to attempt work again in just over a week.  They are keeping her off chemo for another week as her counts are still low, so hopefully she will have a chance to feel a bit better.

Lumbar puncture on Wednesday with spinal chemotherapy.  The fun never stops for her.
