Two steps back (day 38)

Good evening, my dear friends.

News today is not good, in fact, it's scary. The MRI scan last night showed that Nancy's spinal abscesses have never cleared, and in fact have expanded. Even though she's been on all the right antibiotics all through this, and fought off two secondary infections, the main problem that put her into the ICU is still there. And it's getting worse.

The neurological team says that she is weaker than she was a week ago, which is why they did the MRI last night. They added a CAT scan of her head this afternoon, but I haven't heard back on the radiologist report yet.

She is aware that she can't move as much. We're both worried and scared. We're meeting with several of the doctors in the morning.
