Complications: Update 2

Now it’s Monday night and Chloe, Mo & I are back home

Lina had a rough weekend but is doing much better tonight. They started treating the aGVHD yesterday with steroids and it seems to have begun to work.

When we left Lina at noon today she was still not feeling well but the team of 5(!) docs who came to check on her at 11am insisted that her rash and condition seemed to be improved.

She ate a baked potato, a smoothie and two bites of an oatmeal cookie tonight – the first solids in 9 days (update: unsuccessful meal). And she says that she feels better – she was even able to watch 2 movies on Moriah’s portable DVD player and part of the Red Sox game tonight.
