Day +14: ANC is 100!!!




We had a very stressful day yesterday. A brief overview:

Platelets, blood transfusion, incompetent nurse that didn't flush Kate's lines post blood transfusion, clotted central line, furious momma, miracle in room 47 that lead to central line becoming partially unclotted, new intelligent nurse, more platelets, fussy baby, long night.

But, everything about yesterday was erased when we found out about Kate's ANC this morning!

It is 100 (or 0.10 same thing)!!!!

We obviously still have a long road ahead and need to see consistent increases but, at this point, any increase in her counts is a huge victory in my eyes!!

So, prayers that Kate's counts continue to increase! We are ready to bust out of the hospital but need to be engrafted first!

I just started following your blog, and as a registered nurse working on a bone marrow transplant floor (with adults), I know that every increase in the ANC is something to celebrate! Praying for the numbers to keep going UP!

So happy for the good news.
If you don't mind I have a question about a bone marrow transplant. Is it expected that the one she just had will last forever or do recipients have to undergo another one in the future?
