How Tami is Feeling - Back in the Hospital :(

Thank you everyone for your messages, thoughts and prayers for Tami and her potential marrow donor.

Unfortunately Tami has had a setback today and was taken back to the ER this morning. She is there now and they are conducting tests. I'll be posting an update here in this post as soon as I have one :(

Edited to Add at 3:36 PM: Just talked to my mom who informed me that Tami was readmitted to the hospital. The issues that brought her to the ER were not major. Her red blood cell count had dropped and she is now waiting to receive a transfusion. This almost always makes her feel better right away as her blood is then able to oxygenate her body more efficiently. 

Also Tami was dehydrated. Which is also easy enough to remedy. So all in all her return to the hospital is not due to a major setback.

Not sure how long she will be there now but we'll keep you updated.
