- more time spent alert and awake (of course, meds help)
- nausea continues to be less of an issue
- ascites continues to be painful, occasionally requiring pain medication
- eating a little, drinking well enough, with intake levels clearly being limited by the ascites
Susan did spend some time today organizing the kitchen. I doubt it was heavy duty, but certainly that's not something she would have been able to do at all a week ago. When we get the next blood results, particularly the bilirubin level, we may be able to judge progress with her VOD, which, again, is the major determinant of her ascites. Expect more days of ho hum news until then.
