Well, her ANC is still 0, but she does have 4% baby monocytes, which is a good indication that she will have ANC very soon. The photo above is the result of one of her Chemo treatments, Cytarabine. This one can produce a "burn" on the palms of the hand. Now Jesse's skin is starting to peel off. She spent some time playing with it and throwing chunks of skin on the floor. She spiked a fever last night, but was able to swallow two Tylenol. This has been an impossible task the past days because of the throat sores. It really seems that she is turning the corner, and will improve a little everyday. Jesse's humor never ceases to amaze us even in her darkest hours. She makes Clent wait on her hand and foot and calls him "water boy" when he goes to refill her suction water bottle. I think she is having a little bit of fun, and seeing how far she can go with it.
Dakota will finally be getting her license. Tomorrow she will be going on a 3 hour drive with Metro driving school. They will take her on the freeway and all through town. The best part is, the instructor has his own brake pedal, something I wish we had. :) After they are finished, if she did well enough, they give her a passing certificate that she takes to the MVD and receives her license. That will be nice to be able to count on Dakota for the grocery runs and errands.
Clent will be staying with Jesse tonight, we pray for a restful night and as much fun as can be had in our little room.
