From Josh - again
Alisa started her steroids and has been sick off and on since Saturday. It seems like the steroids work to make her feel better, but when the drugs wear off she is sick (and miserable) again.
We went to the ER on New Years Eve/New Years Day at 4:00 AM, she had been throwing up and diarrhea all evening and was very de-hydrated. We were in good company (drunks and others that maybe enjoyed the new year too much). She felt better after they gave her 3 bags of fluids and some IV steroids.
Then she was sick again last night. Dr Grossman called this morning and told her to come in for an infusion of infliximab (I think) at 2:00. When she got here they found she had a fever and decided to take some additional precautions. They are going to take a scan of her abdomen to make sure there is no perforation, they are also going to admit her to the hospital. so we will be spending at least tonight here at Huntsman. I have to say the chairs here are much more comfortable than the ones at the ER and expect I will have a pretty good nights sleep.
