Colonoscopy in the morning

We visited at the hospital today, but she got tired, and I got tired, and so I took the kids home a bit early. As it turns out, they are going to give Beth that colonoscopy in the morning. Yes, she’s been drinking the stuff. They do want to rule out that her gastrointestinal problems are from GVH. We’re hoping she’ll get to come home afterward.

UGI, Colonoscopy on Monday

I visited Beth at the hospital on Saturday. She seems to be doing well. She’s probably going to be there through Monday or Tuesday. I think the plan is that she’ll have both an upper GI endoscopy (UGI and a colonoscopy on Monday. As unpleasant as that sounds, it’ll let the doctors know if she does or doesn’t have the GI version of GVH. The doctor told her that she has pretty much run the gamut now of things that can go wrong. Basically, outside of getting pneumonia, everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong. And now she’s made it through all that. (And this is a factor now that bodes well for the future).
