Hello All - Things are still about the same as they were last week. I still have low magnesium and sodium. Insurance is making it a little harder though. We found out that they will not cover home infusions. This was a mistake on Duke's part and it doesn't sound like we will have to pay for what I've had so far but after Wednesday I can no longer get magnesium infusions at home. They switched the type of magnesium pills I'm taking to something they think may absorb better. The hope is to get me off of magnesium infusions altogether. Hopefully they will come up with something that works so I don't have to go to the clinic everyday again. Once I am off magnesium infusions it also sounds like they will switch me back over to Dr. Moore (the regular oncologist/hematologist) and I will only come to the bone marrow clinic weekly or every other week. This is the stage when most people who live within a couple of hours go home to an oncologist but living 12 hours away doesn't quite work since there are still some clinic visits. SO we will stay here and are hoping to get back to Indiana by the start of the Spring semester.
Much love and thanks,
