Today Erin's ANC is 300!
I'm going to include some of her blood work here for those of you who know what I'm talking about and have been following it. Her WBC is 0.9. Her Neutrifils are up to 24. Her CRP (the swelling/inflammation test) is down to 11 today. It got up to 21 so we're so happy to see that there is a downward trend on the swelling on her sore.
Her cellulitis sore is healing pretty good (better than expected). Yesterday she had morphine and oxycodone to handle her pain, but today she's only been on Tylenol. We are trying to get her off the harder painkillers so that she can come home. She is still on a whole bunch of antibiotics and she'll probably come home with them and we'll have to give them to her here.
As for coming home, well we are just waiting for the sore really. The ANC is coming up nicely and that might be due to the Neuprogen which stimulates cell growth which makes her white blood cell count come up quicker. Anyways, they might not send her home until her ANC is 800 or 1000, but we're not totally certain about that. If her pain is under control and her sore is almost healed and her ANC is getting higher then she'll come home.
Thank you everyone for fasting and praying for Erin. There have been so many blessings that have come from your faith. Thank you so much!
P.S. While our roof is under construction we are without Internet since our Internet comes through a tower that usually sits on our roof. The roofing guys had to disconnect the tower and the Internet peeps can't come until Monday to fix it. So, sorry that there won't be updates on Erin's progress for awhile. Thank you for checking in on us, we appreciate it so much.
