Back in isolation

Guess what! We are back in Ward 19 Isolation. We had all of 1 day completely away from the hospital. It appears that the shingles reacted to the Methotrexate Bianca got on Tuesday or the Dexamethasone she got for the past two days or maybe to both. We don't know for sure, but for now the decision is that Bianca is still off all oral chemo and possibly completely off the Dexamethasone. So she will be getting high dose IV Aciclovir for the time being. Today at least Bianca was able to come home for a bit before she is due back at the hospital tonight, I hope the visits will continue because it does mean the world to the girls to be able to be together.

Tomorrow we'll meet with the doctors from Christchurch as they come to Wellington once a week and we'll be asking some questions to try and understand how this will affect our treatment plan.

So here we go again...

Oh no, I can't believe that you are back there. You must be tearing your hair out. I hope the doctors can sort something out and you don't have to stay there too long.
Take care,
Bridget and Peter

That is not good news. What a menace the shingles are turning out to be. It is making me ever more vigilant about chicken pox as I follow your struggle. Please know your family is in our thoughts daily. Prayers and hugs from us to you.
