Wayne was progressing along, things are looking good………HOLD ON THERE!!! TOO MUCH TOO FAST!!! Everything I have read and is said repeatedly by the staff is, s-l-o-w baby steps and they are not KIDDING!! Something upset the tummy. How do we know? First the “tummy aches” then the diarrhea comes and keeps coming. STOP!! We have to STOP this FAST!!! ECP changed back to twice a week, tube feeding stopped, in fact all feeding was stopped for 48 hours, and sadly, holding off additional weaning from the steroids. A change in one of those variables was one too many. The good news after only 6 days ……. things are back to normal. Well…. almost normal. Most important, the diarrhea has stopped. The bad news……He now has to eat all his calories, all 1,000 calories per day. This is actually hard to do when there are only about 10 things he can have, and the best option is jello, sugarless of course. He is determined, we are determined, to make 10 choices into 100. Let’s hope that it is enough to appease the GvHD. Then he can start back on eating food that is good. Oh, who I am kidding? It may not be good but at least it will be better. Better, getting better is what we are aiming for and then we’ll see who pulled a fast one.
