We are a week out from Mia's transplant.  She is doing just as expected.  In other words, she is miserable:(  Her counts have dropped.  She has not needed any transfusions of red blood cells or platelets yet but probably will need some in the next day or two.  She is on 24 hour nausea medicine, but even still she says her tummy hurts all the time.  Her mouth is bleeding and she has some mucusitis.  She has been unable to eat for several days so she is on TPN, which is IV nutrition.  She likes to sit up in the chair and watch the construtcion of the new lobby.  I have not seen a smile in several days.  She just watches me with big eyes.  She hasn't lost any hair.
