It has been a rough week for Aubree. She has not been feeling good since the scopes that were done. She has stopped bleeding but she is no longer processing anything in her stomach. She throws up all the bile that she makes. When she was on feeds through her NG tube she would throw up. They stopped the feeds, and then the pressure of everthing in her stomach made everything come out of her NG tube. So she is no longer putting anything down her tube but it is being used for a drain. This is nice because at least she isnt throwing up anymore.
They have done a number of tests, including 18 biopsy's from her intestinal tract. Everything has come back normal. The only thing that didnt was a little bit of inflamation in her stomach. With her not being able to move anything in her stomach to her small intestines, with her cell counts dropping and with everything else that is going on they have decided that she must have graft vs host in her stomach. They have started her on steriods to help with this and put her on an IV version of her rejection drug. (she also is not absorbing her medication in her stomach well) These two things should help her to be able to start processing things in her stomach. The steriods make her very aggitated and she is not very happy. It could be a long couple of weeks for all of us!
