Day +42

We are at the clinic. Blood has been drawn for labs and we are waiting on results to see how much magnesium Amy will need today. Yesterday she needed magnesium and potassium.
They switched her antibiotic from IV to oral, so she no longer has to get that here.

Amy still has some "bouts" of nausea and vomiting. The "bouts" usually hit her in the mornings and then sometimes again in the afternoon or evenings. Most of the time they come and go without lasting too long. The biggest thing now is she feels tired all the time, but she still has been great about getting on the treadmill most afternoon.

As of today, Amy has lost about 20 lbs., but she is eating good and her weight will probably start leveling off . She is able to eat a wide variety of foods but they must be fairly bland - the least bit of spice still hurts her mouth. She use to love sweets, but now they don't appeal to her near as much.

We are still grateful for the support and love that so many people have shown to us. Amy has received cards from people we did not known, but who wanted to let her know they were thinking of, and praying for, her. To all of you - thank you. Kathy
