Subject: this is B*** about D***

I spoke to a socialworker about this situation. She is going to find out which hospital D*** is in, and notify me by noon tomorrow.
Meanwhile, all we can do is wait. Otherwise, the flushing worked, and D*** is responsive. She is in and out of consciousness, and between critical and stable. Her platelets dropped, she was in remission, and they are giving her Prednisone through IV. Also Danazol, chemo drug. I know your father had a positive X factor and had a positive lupus anti-coagulant, D*** does too. She does not have Lupus, remind you, she just has a low immunity. D*** is also getting frozen platelets, which she is responding to, and being tube fed. She is on a resporator. D*** was smoking up to a pack and a half a day. Her lungs were not clear with the amount she was intaking.
Whatelse, she is going to be monitored for 48 hours, here. No transfer, yet. This is all I know, so far. I will EMail more when I know.
