This morning went to the hospital and they informed us that there is some kind of bug "growing" in the sample sent to the lab. They don't know for sure yet what kind of bug, but in the meantime wanted to admit her for the night to observe her. She hasn't been herself lately and we need to make sure that it is just side-effects from the drugs she is taking and not actually as a result of some kind of infection. So tonight Bianca and Terence are staying at the hospital.
It was a long day that dragged on and on and on. Doing nothing is actually quite exhausting. We had to wait until after 17:00 to get a room. Lucky that they recently dedicated a nice big room for the oncology kids coming for day stays and this room has 2 beds and some entertainment so it wasn't too bad. The room is great. Lots of us feel that this is a very positive change that they are making at Ward 18.
So eventually we moved into room 14.
Bianca had a tearful start to the day and one moment she was happy, then sad again and so on. At one point she said to me "I'm not having a good day".
