She is home!!! Her ANC rose to 990 (up from 120 yesterday) so she was well above the 200 threshold and got to come home!! Oh my goodness, it is so good to have her home!
Thank you so much for the prayers and support. Lori and I are both feeling refreshed and after a couple of days of being discouraged, we are both renewed mentally and emotionally. We know God’s got this and we just need to keep on keepin’ on!
We are in the middle of week 2 of Cycle 10. There are 12 total cycles and each cycle is 3 weeks long, so we are almost there. Can’t wait!
Next up this week is a blood check tomorrow and possible transfusion. Lizzy’s platelets dropped today from yesterday, so if that trend continues, she’ll need another transfusion. She has an appointment here in Louisville tomorrow with the Oncology group, so if she does need a transfusion, we are hoping to get it in Louisville this time.
Also this week is an outpatient chemo treatment on Friday in Cincy and a GFR test, which tests the kidney function. The chemo drugs potentially impact kidney function, so she has to be tested regularly to make sure there is no kidney damage, especially since she now only has one kidney.
That’s it for now. There really is no place like home and we are so blessed to have her back!
