This week has been much better than last. Andrea doesn't have the headaches anymore and is beginning to hold more and more food down. She did visit the eye doctor this week and some improvement have been made since the last visit. The doctor also told her that at this point he is not trying to correct her vision, but stabilize her eyes for the bone marrow transplant. Once the transplant is over he can go back in and focus more on correction of her vision to some degree. This was very encouraging to Andrea.
Earlier this week the doctors at MD Anderson discovered a small amount of bacteria on Andrea's trachea site and put in a pick line so that she could receive an antibiotic drip from home. She returned to MDA yesterday and saw a head and neck doctor. They decided to do a minor surgery today to help close her trachea site and help it heal more quickly. She will be going into surgery today (Friday) around 11:30AM. Please pray especially for this procedure and we will get her through another obstacle. Hopefully the procedure will not set her back a bit and we will continue on the road to recovery.
Thank you for your support and please keep Andrea in your prayers. God Bless.
