Lou’s brain has been scrambled since Friday. This has only previously happened when her liver has been overloaded processing the chemotherapy with TACE. It’s been a little over three weeks since her last liver treatment so there wouldn’t be any chemo in her liver now.
A simple blood test measures how well the liver is performing its normal functions of producing protein and clearing bilirubin, a blood waste product. Hopefully her blood test today will show her liver is still in good working order.
I’m hoping her horrible symptoms are because she’s eaten very little in the last five days. Her digestive regularity is completely out the window too, so it could be a combination of these two. I actually don’t know.
She started on IV food last night. I really hope this helps.
It’s horrible when her brain is scrambled because she can’t communicate, she’s confused, delirious and scared. Physically Lou is the weakest she’s been.
