What goes down just keeps coming up!

Kerstin hasn't felt very well today. It started at 4:30 this morning with a headache, neck ache and some vomiting. She hasn't really kept anything down today at all. Kerstin is having a stubborn streak and doesn't want to take any extra medicine for nausea or a headache. She has chosen to take a number of naps as she has just been pretty wiped out.
We got to visit the Infusion Center at St. Elizabeth's for a scheduled blood draw today. Her ANC is over 3000 which is great! She didn't need blood or platelets either. We expect that the chemo she got last week will start to bring her counts down in the next few days.
Thanks for all of your continued thoughts and prayers sent our way. It means so much to us! Stay warm!

Kerstin, It's your stubborn streak that will get you through all this yuckiness. Just for fun, ask you dad where you GOT that stubborn streak! :)

We love you -- you're in our hearts. xoxoxoxo

Kerstin,

Well crud... I am sad that you have not been feeling well. I pray you start feeling better... feeling bad just stinks.

Your Mom and Dad are pretty darn smart though... if they think some extra medicine of some kind might help... then give it a shot if you can. They love you... we all love you.

Hang in there.
