Day +20

I'm going to do the very best that I can as far as posting today. I've been given so many different medications, that I can hardly stay awake.By the way Joe thanks for the advice, it has definitely been worth it, and has made my time here go so much faster.

All yesterday afternoon, they pushed fluids through me, So much so that my stomach is very Swollen. The doctor last night said that everything else was looking really good. This morning When I uncovered my feet my left foot was HUGE!!! Plus I have some terrible rashes that are out of control. They are giving me some sort of water pills through my I.V. so far it's not doing it's job.

I'll be very honest, I'm scared. They have no idea whats going on, So they sent me down for a CAT-SCAN, and a Doppler ultra sound. That woman liked to have killed me. She pushed that Doppler deep in my groin, and deep into my legs. All I can say is, MAN that really hurt, I was crying like a baby when she was finally done.

Well the doctor just left and she is going to send me back downstairs to have have more tests done. The rashes seem to be GVHD related (hopefully that will be ok, as long as it stays mild.)
Needless to say I'll probally not be able to go home this weekend.

Sorry to hear you are gonna be in the hospital longer but it is safer for you there as well. I would be scared too and hope they figure out what is going on. Lordy as if there hasn't been enough going on! Hang in there, Donna

Ape, you are a tough cookie. You will get past all the bad days soon. You know it never fails when your in the hospital its allways one new issue after the other. It's like my Dad says "they just are looking for more things to be wrong" if they did't they would all be out of work. Love ya...Ange
