Amy started having nausea and vomiting Sunday evening. Doctors came by Monday morning and released her from hospital. After arriving back home , Amy's nausea and vomiting became worse. Last night she was up almost every hour vomiting . She had an appointment at the outpatient clinic this morning and the doctors ordered anti nausea medications, steroids , potassium and IV fluids - but Amy was still getting sick....so she is now back in the hospital.
I asked the nurses if Amy had the quickest return time back to the floor. They said no, not even close.
Not exactly sure where nausea/vomiting is coming from. Most seem to believe it is a mixture of things.... the mucositis in her stomach/intestines, coming off the TPN and trying to eat food again, and possibly medication side effects. Whatever the cause, it became a vicious circle. The more Amy got sick the more her system got irritated and caused more sickness. They are now trying to break the circle and calm her digestive tract down. She has not been as sick this evening and has been able to get some rest. So please pray they get her nausea/vomiting under control and she can start to eat real food.
Sorry to report but these last couple of days have been the worst for Amy since the transplant.
So please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Kathy
