4 October 2009


Jeremy's cough is getting worse, and it started affecting his sleep last night. He started developing this cough after transplant, and it started getting worse over the past few days (since the tube came out). The doctors have already done chest x-rays and fungo-grams, which show his chect is clear, but the coughing is distressing for him (and tires him out). The explanation we are being given is that this coughing is due to the mucositis causing irritation in his throat.

Jeremy had a platelet transfusion today, and the pre-medication contributed to him having another sleepy day.

He has been a good boy and taken his medicines (coca cola assisted) and for the time being, they will hold off reinserting the nasogastric tube.
