Cynthia (aka Cici) Winant
Note the new resource listing in the right panel:
"Caregiver's Guide for Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant" provided to us by Denise Lillvis of the National Bone Marrow Transplant Link, as well as a link to that organization's home page.
Charley and Cici may have broken the code -- they have given Susan a dose of Atavan pre-emptively, ahead of her scheduled time for taking her medications. This seems to reduce the nausea significantly. As a result, Susan was feeling better when last we spoke earlier this evening.
Susan had a hard boiled egg and a slice of toast for breakfast, a banana for lunch, and a little pasta for dinner. She's drinking some (not the fun stuff, though) and continues to be relatively pain free. Of course, she's still very fatigued, and it's not as if she feels good, but she's definitely feeling better than before.
Tomorrow it's Dana Farber at 7:30 AM. Oiy. Tune in tomorrow night to learn what we learn.
