How Tami is Feeling

Tami has returned home today after being brought to the hospital yesterday.  Since Tami's blood transfusions and platelet transfusions need to be "washed" to reduce the possibility of an allergic reaction, Tami did not finish receiving the transfusions until 4:00 in the morning. 

The doctors stressed that Tami will need to monitor her liquid intake so that she doesn't become dehydrated again. Tami is planning on using small bottles of water when she drinks so that her exact number of ounces she consumes can be counted. 

The one thing at home that bothers Tami that she didn't have to deal with at the hospital is the smell of food being cooked in the house. It makes her feel nauseated.
