Wrong again..maybe the story of my life.
It was a rough night last night.
Almost like clock work, 2 hours after Alisa receives the drug she starts to shake (uncontrollable shivers), they give her some medication (demerol) and it goes away within a minute or so. Last night it didn't work and she was shaking for about 30 minutes before she settled down(a couple doses of demerol and one of dilaudid).
We were awake till about 3:00 AM because her blood pressure was pretty high and so she was not at all sleepy.
Remember yesterday I told Alisa maybe we could go home this morning if she got through her 8th does. First thing this morning they came in and told us it would be best if they could get another dose in today. They say the treatments are cumulative, so the more we can get in a short time, the better. We definitely feel like things get cumulatively worse, so maybe they are right. As of right now (6:45 PM) we are still recovering from the 9th dose and will be coming home tomorrow morning.
Here is a picture of her from tonight.
