Its back to the panel of metaphorical flashing red lights again. On top of all the horrible back pain, now pancreatitis once more. Nausea, diarrhea, additional pain. The CT scan unfortunately did not show an issue. So Spinal Tap tomorrow to look at the fluid in her spine and see if there are cancer cells there. It would be nice if this were an episode of House. Three incorrect theories, then the “aha moment.” But its not like that of course. Sometimes there are no ‘aha moments’ but we hope the immense training and experience of the various health care providers involved will come through and at least help her win this battle. Its hard enough to face the mortal issues Kathleen has when they are hazed in pain and fogged over with heavy pain relief.
