She is taking all her medications by mouth except Caspofungin and Magnesium. Alice was taken off TPN yesterday and she did well. She eats plenty. She is still on a mild diet and will be for a little longer. She will be on a low lactose and low fat diet.
Alice's gut biopsy, from two weeks ago, showed no signs of Celiac. We are thrilled about this, and assume because her gut was so damaged by the Graft vs. Host disease we found it difficult to distinguish between gluten issues and GVHD. Any-which way I suppose it is wise to not overdo any one item in a diet.
We still await her bone marrow biopsy results. Her next visit to clinic will be Thursday this week.
All in all, Alice feels better and looks better!
