I wanted to let everyone know that Erin was admitted to Barnes Jewish hospital last night. She doesn’t feel like writing right now, but maybe she will later. Her counts are really low and she is running a fever. Since she is scheduled to have her stem cells harvested next week, they wanted her on IV antibiotics. If they can’t get rid of the infection and the counts don’t come up they can’t do the harvest. It looks like she will be in the hospital until Monday or Tuesday and hopefully the harvest will be done while she is there. Also she is scheduled on Thursday for a procedure to insert a stint in her left ureter because of the fluid build up in her abdomen. Pray that her body heals so we can stay on schedule. Also pray for emotional strength to endure this setback.
