Change of Plans


We got as far as pre-op today. They even got Greg hooked up to an IV. Then we got some upsetting news from the physician’s assistant. His white blood count is way too high. Then the surgeon came and told us no surgery today. That was hard to hear. Antibiotics now. New labs on Tuesday morning. If the counts come down then surgery will be Wednesday morning. Right now they are way too high. 28000. If they don’t come down, he will be admitted so they can pinpont the cause. The word leukemia was mentioned. I am praying for normal white counts on Tuesday ! Thank you to my readers and friends that are praying with us!

  1. Don’t GO THERE…..I mean it! No need to panic and think the worst. White count can be high from an infection. Antibiotics help that. Stay positive and keep your chin up. Stay hopeful and in good spirits for BOTH of you!
    All that being said….I’m praying for you and your sweet hubby. Know we are thinking of you here in Michigan.

  2. My thoughts have been with you all day. I’m sorry to hear that things aren’t going as smoothly as you hoped. I’m hoping for better numbers on Tues. for you.

  3. Randi, I do know how you feel. Like you are trying to run in quicksand and can’t get anywhere. Twice Lynn has had appointments for surgery and twice he had problems with his heart. He had to have stents one time and a heart attack the next time. J

  4. Sorry, I hit enter too soon. Just put your faith in the Good Lord that when the time is right, it will happen. Sending prayers for peace for the two of you.

  5. Praying hard that new blood work will be fine and surgery will be a go on Wednesday. Hang in there and know that God will take care of you.

  6. Such an emotionally draining delay. All roller coaster rides come to an end eventually. But the ups and downs of this are very hard to take. I’m praying the antibiotics do the trick and this will all be behind you both on Wednesday.

  7. The steps of a righteous chick and her husband are ordered of God! I’m thinking lots of praying and chocolate are on the list!

  8. Many prayers going out for your family Randi. I’ve had yall on my mind a bunch this week, and know that the waiting is the hardest. Many hugs – and know that you have lots of positive thoughts and prayers circling your family right now. Let’s hope the high WBC is some type of infection that will clear up quickly! Cindye

  9. Oh how frustrating and scary for you. Randi you are in my thoughts and prayers each day. May you have strength, patience, faith and comfort during this trial.

  10. Oh, Randi! What a roller coaster. The high white count is a red flag that surgery should not have happened that day, and we pray that the antibiotics kick in and take care of it. We hope that Leukemia is not in the picture, but if so the docs jump on it NOW. Please remind him that he is in our prayers, and you, Randi, close your eyes and feel all of the love and prayer surrounding you and family. (((Randi)))

  11. I’m praying for you both Randi. It’s hard to take setbacks after all, we are only human. Our Lord is in control. May God bless you both. Hope and pray for
    good news.

  12. Randi, I hope you managed to have a good weekend. I know it’s hard when life is such a rollercoaster of emotions. I hope that Tuesday comes quickly for you as I don’t envy you having to wait for news and I hope that Greg gets good results on the bloodwork.

  13. I am sending positive thoughts and keeping you all in my prayers. So sorry for the delay. I know how frustrating that can be. Keeping my fingers crossed for everything else. (((((((hugs)))))))
