Still here, not feeling too well

Emily didn't seem to react too well to the IVIG treatment. She was sick during the night. We called the cardiologist on call at 4:30 am. We got some tylenol in her, and later she was able to take her morning meds. She has a terrible headache and feels sick. She has slept most of the day. As long as she doesn't continue to run a fever and can keep fluids and meds down, we probably can stay the course here. It is hard to see her feeling so bad. Since all of the tests this week showed good heart function there is not concern this is due to graft rejection. It is most likely just a reaction to the IVIG, but it is still pretty crummy.

Thinking of you each morning, Em. Hope last night went better, maybe you can get out and sit on the deck today when the temperature is highest, listen to some robins who have started to return. I hate that you feel so yucky, but try not to despair, try some math, it always makes me feel better!!!!
