Nausea and the 🧫

I think we may have tamed the nausea a bit!! Thanks to my dear cousin Sharada’s brilliant idea – An acupressure wrist band found here https://www.sea-band.com/product/adult-pack/

Yesterday Srinivas and I went grocery shopping and to the drugstore in search of the wristband. I spent the day reading tutorial on acupressure and realized I might have a bit of trouble locating these pressure points. I struggle to feel shampoos and conditioners with my hands, how am i ever going to identify a tendon or muscle? My overly sensitive hands cannot perform sensitive tasks🤫

I was simply happy to find these bands. I am just about willing to try anything to get Swati some relief. From the drug store we went to get foods that Swati MIGHT eat. Nausea-friendly foods. Ritz crackers, water crackers, grapes and one of each – ramen, noodles, Mac and cheese. Who know what might strike her fancy? Something must stay down?

The clinic visits have been fairly uniform. The labs are reporting counts in range for Day 30-ish. Swati has not needed any blood or platelets over the past three days. And her ANC is now 1.38

Tomorrow’s appointment is a big one 🙃 We will meet Dr. Shpall who heads our transplant team. We will be meeting her for the first time, since being admitted to the hospital, since the transplant, since discharge. Pretty excited 🤩 Srinivas will go with Swati and will FaceTime me into the appointment.

See you after!
