Update

Aubree is doing good, or should I say that she is doing what the Dr's expected. She has mouth sores, and those have caused her to stop eating completely. We suction out her mouth because she doesnt even want to swallow. The mouth sores make her saliva very thick and it also makes her nauseated when its in her stomach so we suction out her mouth as much as possible. Her little body is stressed and we can tell because her heart rate is high, a resting heart rate for her right now is about 140, normal would be around 110. When she is up and active it goes up to 175. There is nothing that the Dr's can do about this, she is getting enough fluids, she weighed in today at 9.2 kilo, that is up from yesterday .2 kilo's and she had lasics last night to help with a little water weight. When she came into the hospital she weighed 8.1 kilo's, so she is up more than 2 pounds and when you only weigh 18 pounds that is a lot of weight for a little girl. But over all she is doing good, and when she is awake she is usually happy, but she is not awake alot these days. She is on day +5 so hopefully only 15 more days before she engrafts and then she can start to heal.

  2. oh Autumn that sounds awful, I'm sorry. Sounds like you have had an especially hard day/night. You have made it through so much. Can't wait for Aubree to start healing.

  3. I was hoping after the transplant things would be easier for you. I guess you really have no idea until you are in that situation. We love you both and will put you in our prayers. P.S. How is Nelson?
