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!
