Good News/Bad News

We went to the clinic this morning. How a 9am appointment turns into a 10:30 visit is a question, I think, for the ages....

Anyway, the result indicated an ANC of 1600 - woo hoo!

But, a hemoglobin below 7.5 - so we're back in this afternoon for a blood transfusion. Not sure how this will go. The room looks comfortable enough - for an adult; lots of lazy-boy recliners, magazines, a tv and vcr. I'm not sure how well equiped it is for a 2 yr old, but I don't suppose a sandbox and monkey-bars would be indicated here either.

My main concern is that this procedure is going to take place right at naptime, and last for 3 hours, assuming no allergic reactions. Keep your eyes peeled for the follow up post. It should be a good one.

  • i'm glad to read the ANC's are rebounding nicely and the family is hanging tough.

    thank you for sharing your lives.. i'm at the edge of my seat, so i really appreciate the updates. you are all in my thoughts everyday.

    ..and now the cliche part:
    "DO CALL with anything i can do to help." ..from a lending ear, to an hour or two breather from it all.. just say the word and i'll facilitate.
