Friday +158 (Evening)

Tonight Jackie received what should be her last round of "anti" IVs. At one time they had 5 bags of noxious IV solutions running into to IV lines. The anti-fungal solution made her very sick (as it did last night). They had to give her a shot of Demerol before they could continue. This, in addition to her premed Benydryl, made her very sleepy. Between the two drugs it managed to counteract the Prednisone.

She is still having a great deal of difficulty eating. She is nauseated and nothing appeals to her. The Prednisone may increase her appetite so maybe this will help her with her eating.

Until later....
