surgery and fasting postponed!

so, everybody, surgery has been postponed until this thursday, dec 17, due to mucositis. please adjust your fast accordingly.

a slim chance exist that it's an infection and not mucositis. but dr jones believes it is most likely this very common side effect of methotrexate, one of three chemo compounds routinely introduced into sofie's body.

mucositis is NOT dangerous of itself. dr jones said it's more a hassle and possibly painful for sofie than anything else. it is dangerous with respect, and i do mean respect, to metal inside the body which is why they postpone surgery for it. bacteria constantly sheet off the little white sores heightening the possibility of infection to the inserts.
