Hi, guys! Happy Thursday to you all. I just wanted to send out a quick message to update you on Morgan, being that I did not have an opportunity to do so last night. So, let’s get started.

For the past several days, Morgan has not been feeling well. She had been experiencing nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and sharp lower abdominal pain that radiated down her legs into her feet. The pain seemed to come in cycles every 2 hours and lasted about 15-20minutes at a time. It would then gradually dissipate. We initially thought that all of these symptoms were a result of the new medication that she started last Thursday:  however, that was not the case.

While the nausea and vomiting is likely due to the new medication, the pain that she was experiencing is due to her being dehydrated , as is the fatigue. On top of that, she was in need of blood. That said, she received 2 units of blood and a bag of fluids in the clinic yesterday. Although she is not feeling 100%, she is definitely feeling better than she was, thankfully.

As far as IV chemotherapy, it was delayed for at least another week due to her platelets still being low. To be honest, this made us a little nervous being that she was supposed to start her 2nd month of weekly chemotherapy on 2/27/19. However, her oncologist assured us that being delayed is normal with this particular medication. Let’s pray that she is able to move forward with treatment next week.

Well, I think that will do it for today. I hope you guys have a awesome day. Make it a great one!

Warmest regard,

Salina Watson
