October 27, 2006 , Day 10


Today was a fast and interesting, with lots of experimenting about my current symptoms again. We actually started our day with a shower! What a concept! It was a long, very warm shower. During the shower, I just ran the water into one side of the mouth using my cupped hands and let it run out on the other. It was great! Mommie, I mean Menchie, wouldn't let me take a shower again. Said it would ruin my appetite or something. Not like I have an appetite yet. My blood pressure has been pretty elevated. Menchie and I also finished the first 1000 piece Puzzle. We have started on the next one. Another TNT visitor came by and we had a great lunch without food. The hallucinations from the morphine have made communicatoin to all visitors quite challenging.

On the medical front, some changes to the courses. They reset my cyclosporine due to elevated creatinine levels and other side effects associated with creatinine levels. I got a transfusion of both platelets and RBCs, with no benedryl. I got some minor rashes spread about through most of my body.
