This will be short.
As the results from Alice's blood came back today at clinic I sat in the chair and watched her play with her toys. She looked normal, content and happy to be there. I really believed that this would be another short day in clinic...it would be four weeks in a row. However the reported numbers revealed an entirely different story. Her hemo was down to 7.6....and ANC dropped from 4.5 to .2. Her platelets were just high enough to hold off on a transfusion, but she is on a downward spiral. She received more IVIG today. Her downward change was so much that the doctors feel another marrow transplant is needed sooner than later. It took my breath away. Alice will be back in the hospital Thursday to receive more blood and platelets. Lisy and I will be meeting with the doctors on Monday. Alice will go through another biopsy next week. By then we will know what the doctors have in mind for a schedule.
I know this is short and there is more I could write, but I feel low tonight. Lisy does too. Will write more when we know more.
