It’s been another long day. Ana is extremely exhausted and as of now she has a temperature of 101. I’m really worried about her immediate health at this moment because she’s also complaining of new, sharp pains in her stomach. She had more morphine at around 5:30 which should be controlling the pain and this new pain just started. I called the nurse (twice) and finally tracked her down (it was the shift change) and she gave Ana some tylenol. The new night nurse (not Dee, unfortunately) is going to call a physician in to examine her.
We’ve been given a couple of estimates about when we’ll get the biopsy results back – the longest being 48+ hours. I spoke with the attending physician though, Dr. Jessica Hochberg, said we may get preliminary results tomorrow.
Sometimes, like now, it feels like this waiting is too much to bear especially because Ana is in so much pain. I’m sick with worry. I’m sick with watching Ana suffer. I HATE this! I just want us all to be back home with Ana healthy again. It’s just so overpowering. It feels like it’s taking all my strength to keep from completely breaking down.
