Day 21 Tick Tock Tick Tock

Saturday and Sunday were seriously "wait" days.  The only medical treatment Susan is having is "wait."  Not much difficult about that.  We did have the pleasant company of Jerrilyn and Tim Herd, who passed through here on their way to the Big Apple.  Jerrilyn took care of Susan for the whole day on Sunday.  Then she came to my place and made us all a delicious dinner.

Today?  What else: wait.  Susan was serious about the getting stronger today; she slept  quite a bit.  The itching seems to be subsiding.  Her antihistamine and hydrocortisone cream are working and her system is getting cleaned out of all the chemicals modern medicine has been putting in her. 

Tomorrow we are anticipating another tube check.  We don't know if it has been ordered yet.  It would be nice to have it early in the day.  That's probably wishful thinking.

Mary and I and Susan have decided that visitors take too much out of her.  So, no one should visit her in the hospital.  If all goes well, she should go home tomorrow or Wed.

And so it goes. . . Love to all, John.
