November 6 Status Update

In the morning Linda was half asleep, getting agitated at times and talking incoherently (many requests about sending/receiving email). Later she was more alert, still confused, but realizing that she was confused. She refused to eat lunch but had some high calorie ice cream. Her nurse also mentioned that she should be encouraged to drink the Ensure shakes, as they are high nutrition and she is no longed fed intravenously due to the infection.

Later in the afternoon the doctors came by. They said they might add an additional dose of Rituxin this week and that it takes some time to see an effect. They also mentioned that the liver issues are multifactorial, affected by the GVHD, infection, and other issues. Her bilirubin levels remain high.
