I just spoke on the phone to Mrs. T’s nurse, who passed on a report from her doctors about her condition at midday Sunday. It now appears that she is holding her own—her blood pressure is down and her other medical requirements have remained steady (instead of spiraling upward, as would have been the case if she were deteriorating). While it’s too soon to say for sure how well her new antibiotic regime is working, these are all positive indicators.
The doctors suggested that I stay home today: they’ll be busy with her and other patients. This, too, is a good sign—I’m sure you can guess what it would mean if they told me to come to the hospital at once, or be ready to come on short notice. I plan to do FaceTime with her tonight.
Yes, it’s important not to jump to conclusions, but the situation this afternoon is definitely much more hopeful than it was twenty-four hours ago.
UPDATE: As of Sunday night, Mrs. T is no longer holding her own. I will keep you posted.
