Casey had a great visit with his friend Griff.  On Friday, Kyle came over and they enjoyed the nice weather and a visiting nurse came to see him.  When she left, Casey and I took a 1 mile walk around Grubb lake, and on Saturday we went to the Phillies game.  He had a great time, he said he felt like he was on vacation.  Saturday afternoon Casey started to feel really bad, with nausea and cramping.  He tried to make Easter dinner yesterday, but was too uncomfortable.  Today when he went up for his visit, they kept him.  He is back as a patient at Hershey Medical Center.  A ct scan revealed a large intestinal bubble, so they have taken him off of all food and are feeding him through his IV.  They feel as though this is graft vs host disease, where the body is trying to fight off the new cells.  They are able to give him so heavy duty pain medicine to help keep in comfortable.  Boy, what a difference 2 days can make!
