There wasn’t a lot going on with Lanie today. Her liver numbers were up a little again so another doctor from infectious disease came to look at her. The rash seems to be going away. It’s not so bright red and looking angry. The liver numbers seem to be due to her meds. She’s on so many, they can’t really tell which is causing her numbers to go up. They thought it was the Tylenol, but this doctor doesn’t believe she was given enough to cause the liver function to decrease. Hopefully, they’ll start going up again.
She’s been laying down a lot because of the same headache and back pain. Tonight she got pretty nauseous with the two antibiotics they gave her, plus her neck was hurting her a lot. So for a few minutes, she was pretty miserable. She called the nurse, and she came in and gave Lanie a Zofran and a Flexeril. Since the Zofran dissolves on her tongue, it works pretty quick. So she did get some relief after about 30 minutes of being miserable.
She ate well today. She had a few lumpias throughout the day and some rice. She had waffles, chocolate, tea, water, and more lumpia. She has a great appetite. We’ll see what Dr. B says in the morning. I’m staying in the hospital again with her tonight.
