We are about to finish up round 3. Jesse's ANC today is 330 . Even though it is past the 250 mark, they are going to keep her through the weekend. This will give her a chance to ween off the pain med, antibiotics, and get the TPN down to 12 hours a day. She also has her bone marrow test on Monday. As soon as she is up and about, we will be going home. She will need to come back in on Wednesday to check her platelet count and make sure they are increasing.
Jesse is still vomiting blood, which tells us the sores in her throat are not healed yet. Her liver is still hurting her during those times, but the pain has eased up a bit.
We are really looking forward to having Jesse home again. We hope that having her in her own room, will boost her spirits, calm her tummy and just feel normal for a few days.
Round 4 is looming around the corner. I have been told that it is worse than round 3. How could that be??? I guess more of the same and just hitting her harder. I think if we increase the pain med, she may never remember it.
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.
Love, Team Catron
