That look tells all...Elijah is feeling miserable today. He is no longer able to keep his feedings down and so now he will get all of his nutrition through an IV...called TPN feedings. He is on pain meds, lots of anti nausea meds and along with all of his regular medications. His blood pressure rises with each dose of cyclosporin (he gets that 3 times a day) and he gets a medication to bring his blood pressure down each time.
These issues are as expected...the doctors are keeping a close eye on him. He is such an incredible trooper...he is trying to sit up and play, but he just doesn't have much energy at this point. He is not a complainer that is for sure...although I wish he could tell us how he is feeling inside. For now, I interpret what I see for the nurses...because in the midst of vomiting he will tell them that he is feeling "just fine..."
