One pair nearly matching jim jams – dark grey and peach bottoms with and cream top accompanied by spotted cream and pink bra (as we know now I didn’t follow Lorna’s advice and get a vest) covered with the odd splatter of blood
Bunch of tissue paper pressed to base of nose
Plastic glove filled with ice, knotted and pressed to bridge of nose as improvised ice compress.
After party wear – two tones of peach pj bottoms and peach top all completely bloodless.
Apparantley nose bleeds can be a sign that platelets are dropping and are nothing to worry out plus the sertraline I take for the steroid induced OCD thins the blood too. Steriods have been kept to a miniumum with non before and four since the transplant the last being tomorrow and so far no OCD which is fantastic.
No more vomiting the motion sickness tablets are really affective but do knock me out a bit, but this sleepiness sometimes wears off without altering the effectiveness of the anti sickness
More things learned
