Erin just received Neupogen through her IV. The Neupogen will help Erin's body produce white blood cells so that they can help fight against her sore. She is scheduled for an MRI at 8:00am tomorrow morning. They upped her dose of Oxycodone from 1.0ml to 1.5mls. She also has an order for Morphine waiting if we decide to give that to her. She seems to be feeling a bit better since she had the platelet transfusion, the Neupogen, and a bath. I think soaking in the bath really can help her diaper area heal.
She is eating a red Popsicle and watching Strawberry Shortcake for the 2nd time today. It's been a long day, but a good one too. I got to visit Rachel Steele (our 16 yr old AML friend) who is in the end of her 3rd round of chemo. I love seeing Rachel's beautiful smile. Marie, her mother, came to our room and we chatted for a good amount of time. It was really really really nice to talk with Marie about AML and how it's changed our lives. We wish that Erin and Rachel could get together and hang out, but there's no doing that while Erin and Rachel's counts are both at zero.
