Bone Marrow Biopsy #7 / CBC / Platelets

White blood cells: 0.8

Hemoglobin: 7.0

Platelets: 27

ANC (Absolute Neutrophil Count): Not checked if white blood cells are less than 1.0.

 

I received 1 unit of platelets.

 

Now for the good news…I went from having 35% bad cells to 2.5%. I am clear for transplant with anything less than 5%. This was the best news we had in a long time, I am back in remission after 1 round of chemo :)

The plan is to do one more round of chemo (same drugs I had for round 3, I did just fine with them!), another biopsy afterward, and transplant within one month of that biopsy (if the results are good). Prior to getting this next round of chemo, we really want my counts to come up more so I can get this dental work done. We’re looking at probably mid-May for transplant. More waiting…

I vomitted, which I am phobic about. I have not done so through most of my treatment, but this last round of chemo is kicking my ass. Yes, I am now charting when I vomit. What a life, huh?

Received 1 unit of platelets also submitted a fecal sample to test for C-Diff, which is a nasty infection causing massive collidus. The test was negative. Let’s just say my poo was not as it normally was, and the ninja poo were creeping up on me (ninja poo: silent, undetected poo until visual surprise).
