Day 7

Day 7 finds the doctors extremely pleased at where she is in regards to engraphment. They really believe this is what's happening. Her Absolute Neutrophil Count is 870. This is good news. They have said all along that she would be outpatient when counts are over 1000 and no fever. Now the fever continues to haunt us, but it is normal to roller coaster. Riding a roller coaster is sorta what it feels like in terms of emotions. Good news, bad news, good news,...Doc said this morning that in 3 days, we should be able to say that forever in history, Veteran's Day 2010 was her engraphment day. She is very tired today and had another fever this morning which again is normal. She just gets to rest. The first results came back from yesterday's blood cultures as negative. Still good news. She has not lost her hair. She has been eating a little everyday. All I can continue to say is how wonderful everything is at this point. Again, if this is truly engraphment, she is the rare one. To engraph after 7 days only happens in 20% of the cases. Go God! That just gives me goose bumps and watery eyes all at the same time. This is amazing to watch! We are finding refuge under His wings.
