Day #8 - afternoon

When I got back to see Jeanine this morning, the nurse came in and said that Jeanine is done with her treatments until the next time she goes to the hospital. The doctor said that her blood pressure, temp, pulse and blood test results show that she is on the edge of things going very wrong and he doesn't want to take that chance. She was able to make it through 12 treatments which was 2 past the minimum of 10 (and 2 less than the maximum.)

So Jeanine is now in the hospital recuperating from her treatments. Her skin that was reddened is now peeling much like you would from a sunburn. She is exhausted and sleeps a lot. She also says everything just hurts.

We will probably bring her back to our house for us to take care of her until she is able to care for herself. We are not sure when that will be. When this first began, we were told that she would probably spend 24-48 hours recuperating at the hospital, go home for 10 days and then return to the hospital for another round of treatments. We will see, as you have seen over the last 8 days, things can change drastically at a moment's notice.
