Natalie's levels are climbing. Her ANC is 900 today! More Platelets today. Many tummy aches and pain. She is on neupogen (bone marrow stimulant)which makes her very achy. Each day Natalie spends a half and hour with the PCMC school specialist. She enjoys the fun learning exercises they do together. Natalie has been planning some pranks for the nurses, so we thought we would post some. She loves jokes and anything silly.
Oh and by the way, we did have Natalie change her clothes and wash up after being on the floor. Natalie has had more vomiting today, and some stomach/intestinal trouble. This can sometimes be a sign of graft vs. host disease. We hope this isn't the case.
Lisy's Aunt Michelle came by and took Evie home with her for the day. It was nice to have a free hand today for both of us.
Alice has handled the busulfan (chemo) and fludaribine (chemo) decently at this point. She has been more fussy today and agitated for obvious reasons. Thursday will be a hard day for Alice. She will be given all three chemo drugs, and one being the ATG (rabbit antibody). ATG is our least favorite and most difficult. The nurse removed Alice's PICC line today. She has had a PICC line in her arm since June 3rd last year. It has just become a part of her. Now that it is gone, she might feel like she is missing a limb.
