Well her blood counts came in this morning: WBC: 0.2HGB: 8.7HCT: 24.2PLT: 126ANC: 0 We’ve hit the low (Nadir) so now we just need to wait for her counts to recover. She does have a bit of a runny nose this morning but I’ll keep an eye on it.
Today has been another rough day. I’m exhausted, she’s exhausted but hopefully this was the end of the bad days for this round of chemo.
The past few days have been exhausting as Shyanne has been pretty fussy. She does have some good moments but she’s been wanting to be held A LOT! Her ANC is down to 319 which explains a lot of this. She’s not feeling well and just doesn’t know why. All she knows is that she… Continue reading Chemo Round 2: Day 7
The days are starting to blur together now. I’m thoroughly exhausted already as little miss doesn’t want to sleep in her bed and there is no ‘co-sleeping’ allowed so I can’t put her on the pullout with me. We end up sitting in the chair with my feet propped up and my neck pillow while… Continue reading Chemo Round 2: Day 6?
We’ve been busy this morning with lots of visitors. We’ve had nurses, doctors, the Bone Marrow Transplant coordinator, and Ms. B from Child Life come by. I know everyone has seen the paper balloons that you can write your name on in return for a donation. Those are for the Children’s Medical Network and I… Continue reading Chemo Round 2: Day 5: Lots of Labs
I knew we were in for a long night but I never imagined just how rough it was going to be. I don’t remember them being quite this rough, this early, during the last round. It makes me nervous about this new medicine that she’ll be starting today.
I meant to post this last night but Shyanne was not having it as she wanted all of the attention. Yesterday was a bit anxious to me. Bringing her back to the hospital really makes me anxious as I’m constantly wondering if I’ve overlooked any important signs or if she might spike a fever while… Continue reading Bone Marrow Biopsy #2
Sorry… this had published last night but something wonky happened at the link wasn’t working… We’ve been home for a couple of days and enjoying our time here. It just seems to be going by so fast and I feel like I’m moving so slow. Shyanne however has been working on her sitting skills and… Continue reading Clinic Visit
So it’s been hard not to say anything yesterday but I didn’t want to jinx anything. Things have been up in the air a bit because of her numbers going up and down. Then there was an issue of whether we could get her meds filled as they needed a prior authorization… so much suspense!
It’s been busy for being the weekend. I did sleep in until almost 7:00 as I stayed up last night making a Caring Bridge Page for Shyanne. I really like the site as it has many wonderful features. We can keep a lot of links in one spot to make them easier to find. They… Continue reading Chemo Round 1: Day 23
