We had another interesting day. Jesse has not eaten in 4 1/2 days, so they really wanted to get Jesse some nourishment, but not TPN because of the stress on her Liver with the dehydration. So...they opted for feeding here through her nose down to her stomach. It started rather funny, as the hose got closer to her nose and touched it, she giggled because it tickled. Then as it started to go down, not so much giggling. Im sure it was much like swallowing a snake. Jesse was choking, gagging and crying. They finally finished and it was in, but knowing Jesse, she immediately started vomiting, and up came the hose to her mouth. OK, at this point I am thankful we where not at home. The nurse pulled it out through her nose, and that was the end of nose feeding. Today they have no choice but to start the TPN again. Jesse really is trying to eat, but not much stays down. She needs 2600 calories a day, and that is really hard to consume. They still plan on starting the chemo on Friday. This session is for 5 days, with two different chemos-seems like it may be the easiest round (if there is such a thing).
We just got news that they will be doing the CT scan for her lungs. We should have results tomorrow.
Hug your loved ones today,
