Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday evening to each of you. I just realized that I did not send out an update this past Wednesday. Although I know the majority of you keep up with our daily Facebook post, I understand that you look out for weekly updates, too. So, let’s get to it!
Last Wednesday while at Morgan’s clinic visit we learned that her blood counts were still low, specifically her platelets. This means that her 2nd month of IV chemotherapy for this phase was postponed another week. Currently, she is 3 weeks behind as a result of this.
We also learned that she was in need of another blood transfusion. Due to the antibodies that are in her blood as a result of multiple blood transfusions, 2 units were ordered Wednesday, and she was transfused Thursday. This is the scenario that occurs each time she is in need of a blood. Otherwise, she would receive them the same day.
With that said, she’s doing well. She has had some ups & downs since her appointment due to fatigue, nausea & headaches, but all things considered, she is hanging in there.
On that note, I hope you guys get a good nights rest and have a great week. We’ll plan on seeing you here on Wednesday and on Facebook until then. Take care!
