Day+12

Hi all. This is Winnie’s husband, Daniel, she don’t have enough energy to update her blog. So I just want to share how she is doing so far. 12 days after the transplant, the nausea and stomach cramps still bothering her. They give her pain killer to address the pain. But the side effect not only make her sleepier and develop hallucination. Even they reduce the dosage on her, she still dreaming a lot.

She also have blood and platelet transfusion a few times when her count were low. These two days her blood and platelet seems to start going back up, especially platelet jump a lot. The stem cell may working for her.

Few days ago her temperature went up to a warm side. They arrange her a CT scan in case of infection. The result back was she has a minor pneumonia. Fortunately the day before the CT scan they did give her antibiotic and is now under control.

She haven’t been able to eat for more than ten days now. The mouth sore problem cause her not to eat anything. When she try to swallow anything, it will make her want to throw up. She can only get vitamins and minerals throught the IV drip.

Last week her hair start to fall off and the nurse decide to shave her head, and now she has a new look. This is her first time shaving her head.

Not until the new white blood count start to grow, she is still suffering from the side effect of the chemo and radiation. We are looking forward to see her immune system go up and strong. Hopefully the new stem cell will keep making new and healthy blood. Thank You!

    Daniel – thank you so much for the update – I have been really worried. Winnie – you are a fighter and although it is hard right now its going to get better very soon. You should be engrafting any day now and your wbc will be getting higher and with that you will notice a big difference in how you feel. Mouth sores are the worst – I had them for 7 months post transplant – part of the stomach pain is from the medication…see if they can change some of the meds you are taking or try taking them at night so you can sleep through the nausea – know that I am praying for you!
    YOU CAN DO THIS!!! KEEP SWIMMING!

    just knew you had your stem cell transplant last month.
    I had ALL in 1998 and a stem cell transplant in 1999. thanks our Lord Jesus Christ for healing me and now i’m living a blessed life.
    May God give you His peace and faith. He is looking after you and you’ll be back on track very soon.
    Emmanuel!
