Overnight Stay

Today has been a long day and it's not over yet! ENT did come by and sucked up the loose blood and then packed her nose with a gauze and she is very unhappy about this. They want it to stay for a couple of days! We were told that they would like Emily to stay overnight so they can get to the bottom of what is causing the bleeding that she continues to throw up! GI will be coming up tomorrow sometime to see what's going on since they think it's a possibility that maybe it is intestinal from the avastin! With her hemoglobin dropping that much again since last Thursday we don't want her to continue to go through throwing up that much blood each time!

She did get platelets earlier and they wanted them to be given much slower with steroids, Benadryl and Tylenol! Thankfully today she didn't have any reactions!  Her heart rate has started to come down a little with continuous fluids, but should drop much more when she gets her blood transfusion!  

Emily was moved from PCU and is now in a regular room and she has been pre medicated for her blood transfusion along with amicar and Zofran! She should be starting her blood transfusion soon!

Please continue to keep Emily in your thoughts! She has lost 3 lbs since early last week and thankfully tonight she did eat a little bit! 

We will update tomorrow as we know more!
