Got some good news, got some bad news...

Well, have some good news, and have some bad news for you. First, the bad news...

Today we had to check Tina into the hospital. The last 4 or 5 days have been really bad for her, and she has been getting weaker and weaker every day. She had lost a lot of weight, her energy level was down, and she had very little appetite. We had a talk with her, and we gave her the option to head to a hospital, or wait a day or two to see if she got better. With the way she was feeling, she opted to head to the hospital...and we all agreed it was the right thing to do.

The good news, if you can call it good news, is we now know why she was feeling so bad - pneumonia. I guess the infection in her left lung is really bad. She was moved to ICU, and they have already begun treatment for it. We are hoping for a speedy recovery, but due to the weak condition she was in before we got to the hospital, it might take a bit longer than normal for her. Yes, it is a stretch to call it good news, but it could have been much worse - at least it doesn't have anything to do with the cancer. We are happy we got her into the hospital when we did...

While we are here, we are also going to see if we can get a read of how Tina is doing aside from the pneumonia. Since she has been in hospice so long, we haven't really had any tests done on either her heart or her tumor(s). Hopefully being in the hospital might give us some information that might help us after she gets out as we look at the next steps to try and get her treatment - our goal AFTER we get her better from the pneumonia...

Anyway, will keep you updated in the next couple of days...
