Not a great start to the day

Dr Kaplan was by at 6:15. He said we'd just see how day went, get the nausea under control. He will be talking to the neurosurgeon and radiation oncologists today about when to start the whole brain radiation.

She's feeling dizzy and disoriented when she moves or sits up. It only took her 1/2 hour after he left to throw up. It seems to me much like motion sickness instead of reaction to narcotic pain meds which she has been off of sense Saturday. The question is, is this a lingering effect of the hydrocephalus and/or brain shunt surgery or is it a sign of emerging effect of the cancer in her brain? It's quite disconcerting.
