Jesse is doing well. When she was taken by ambulance, her Hemoglobin was 6-a normal number is closer to 12. So that explains turning white, low blood pressure and passing out. She received 3 blood transfusions, and woke up feeling great.
Jesse has an appointment tomorrow to check her counts again, with a bag of blood on order just in case. She will not be re-admitted for round 4 until sometime next week. Her platelets have to be 75, and we will have a new count tomorrow. Yesterday, they where still 34. This is not something they will transfuse just to get her there, she has to make them on her own.
We continue giving all her meds around the clock, and the dreaded foscarnet for her HHV6 3x a day. This process takes 1 1/2 hours, and at 11:30 pm we are finally done, and then start it up again at 6:00am.
All of this is certainly taking its tole on Team Catron, but we will continue to run the race one day at a time.
