Hey everyone, its Andy posting and update. This is not one I want to post, but feel as I need to. Today, 11-24-10, I was helping Sandy around the house walking from the couch to the bed to the bathroom and back to the couch and she looked at me and said that she needed to go back to the hospital and could not do it like this anymore. This coming from Sandy, if you know her or have read her blog posts or have heard about her is very disheartening. Sandy is not one to want to go to the dr or the hospital. It is a last resort for her. She got taken off of her trial drug last thursday because it had stopped working. For the past three weeks Sandy has gotten steadily worse in functioning, but since Saturday I've noticed a big difference in her energy, strength and all around demeanor. Sandy has no strength at all and even going out of the house or even being awake for an hour at a time wears her down and makes her sick to her stomach.(as if she wasn't already sick to her stomach). Well her local oncologist came in today and said from looking at the scans they did today as compared to the last ones a few weeks ago he wanted to give us a straight answer and not beat around the bush. He stated that it may be as little as days if that for Sandy. (we are praying and hoping for the miracle that will prove this wrong and be something for the medical books to write about) Sandy is not one to give in like I said before. She even joked with me and her best friend Lindsay that she has to have more than just days because we got given tickets to go watch the Tennessee Titans play on December 5th and she couldn't miss that. I don't know what else to write on her but Sandy does enjoy visitors, cards, e-mails, or just thoughts and prayers and she is admitted to MTMC in room 545. I still say that 5 West has the best nurses of anywhere. On another note as of 11-22-10, I have been married to an amazing woman for 7 years and I want to be selfish and have many more to come so bring on the prayers! Oh my sister, her husband, and my 5 and a half WEEK old niece came to visit so Sandy could meet litle Sophia and they are watching our kids at our house until they have to head back to Iowa on Friday. Sandy really perks up when she sees Sophia, its an amazing site.
