Post Stem Cell Transplant: Day +12

Due to the high risk of infection and her physical discomfort, Tami is not able to have visitors at this time.

So, I found out that Tami is still eating some solid foods but also needs the TPN nutrition supplement until she can eat more. She did eat three meals yesterday, oatmeal for breakfast, something for lunch and clam chowder for dinner. 

She also got some exercise in walking around the floor which is good because the doctors want her to walk as much as possible as it will help in her recovery.

She did receive her final scheduled dose of the immunosuppressant yesterday so her mucositis mouth and throat sores may continue to worsen for a few more days but if she doesn't need any more of this particular medicine this particular side effect may linger for a few days but then should begin to lessen moving forward.

So in general this was a very positive update I received late last night. I'll post this morning's update when I receive one.
