Awaiting biopsy results

Ananya just had her biopsy. Its always disconcerting to let her go for these procedures - I hope she and I never get used to it. The results will be back this evening. Her output from the abdominal drain (JP drain) is the same - it just fills more slowly. I don't know what that means. She's only getting 6 hours of IV fluids now - and gets 50% of what she puts out in the JP drain back in the form of albumin. I continue to hope the longer our stay here extends.. that no other complications develop - like line infections, pneumonias, kidney failure etc. Normally the central lines stay in ~ 3 weeks...we're nearing that mark without an endpoint in sight. Boy, I can't wait to get out of here, and stay out...
