To Sabine’s sister, Barbara:
We are back in the ER. HIGH BP 210/110.
Maybe you should come down here and manage this case. I am so scared and spend most of the time weeping.

Thanks again for your love and care. it just gets so overpowering sometimes regarding these spiking BPs. They let Sabine go in the ER and we had a restful night. The docs in the hospital tell us to go to the ER whenever her BP gets over 180/high 90s -- the ER doc says don't worry about it -- I know this is our journey now -- entering the undefined and different ways this disease will manifest itself.
I just feel SO sad for Sabine that I sometimes am overwhelmed with a sense of both dread and grief. Thanks for being there for us. We have the bone marrow biopsy later this morning and we should know some more answers (hopefully) when we meet with the oncologist next Wednesday at the U.W. Comprehensive Cancer Care Center..
