Blog for Jackie Sue while at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. UPDATED. This blog now covers her progress after her mini-allo MUD transplant. Her transplant was the first one to be performed by the Mayo Clinic.

Tuesday +41 (10:30 AM)

Just a quick update for the night. We just returned from the hospital for the nightly IV infusion. Along with the usual anti-viral treatment she also received another unit of magnesium. She continues to need IV magnesium in spite of the fact that she is now taking 5 pills per day of oral magnesium. It seems the entire transplant alters the electrolyte balance. They also prescribed a blood pressure med for high blood pressure. I'm not certain that was needed. Today her blood pressure was off a bit, but it has been normal most of the time.

I did a quick count this evening and she is still taking 28 different pills per day! I think at one point her intake approached 50 pills per day.

Until Later,

Bruce and Jackie
From Rochester, MN
