Last night before bed Alice said her tummy was hurting. We brought her the pink bucket and out went dinner. She was fine the rest of the night; however, this morning she vomited at least 8 times and couldn't keep any food in her tummy nor her medicine. We informed the doctors and they felt it would be wise to watch her over night.
She has been nauseous intermittently for the fast few weeks. We wonder if she may be experiencing borderline symptoms of rejection. Her steroid has tapered to a low dose and we have begun the cyclosporine taper. The possibility of Graft vs. Host Disease is again an option, and as always a virus is an option too. Alice does not have a fever...this is a good thing.
She is happy and doesn't seem under the weather, however, we'd rather error on the side of caution and see that she is checked for possible problems.
Typically nausea from the chemo has long past...it's hard to pin point things with Natalie and Alice because of their complexity. Is it diet? Is it rejection? Is it an illness? Hopefully in Alice's case it's simple and fixable.
Still no news on Alice's biopsy.
