Monday +145 (Evening)

Just a quick update. Jackie continues to have a lot of nausea and bone/muscle pain. The reason is unknown. She has had a couple of instances of vomiting. This is the first time she has been this sick in quite some time. The pain and nausea is well controlled by use of Oxycodone but she is hesitant to use it. She is afraid she will become reliant upon the strong pain meds.

The kids were all home for the Labor Day weekend and this seemed to help. We will be returning to the Mayo Clinic at the end of this week for another checkup. This is the first return visit in 5 weeks.

Jackie continues to taper her Cyclosporine levels. We are hoping she will not experience any GvHD as the taper continues. The current level is 175 mg. Just prior to transplant she was taking about 900 mg per day.

Until later...

Bruce and Jackie
