Karen had a long day with the replacement of blood, platelets, electrolytes, magnesium and potassium. But that is all very common from what I have heard. She has to start to eat every three hours, but today she is doing fine with a croissant for breakfast and a pizza for lunch. She says she will try a roast beef sandwich for supper, there will be three months of no veggies or fresh fruit. The only complaint so far today is that her bones are very sore, and she seems very tired. Hopefully tomorrow she will not need anything, except maybe a discharge class. Well, if her fever goes up, I will write again tonight if not I will write tomorrow. Take care Harry, now the numbers we are watching are the count down till she makes it home.
