Emily our nurse came in this morning to give more good news. I was too anxious to wait and write tonight. Alice's ANC rocketed to 1100! A healthy jump from 400. No doubt the Neupogen is showing its presence in that number, nonetheless it makes her unlikely to fall below 500 tomorrow. So, today very well will be her engraftment day. If so she will be six days ahead of the average, which means the sooner her mouth will heal and the sooner she will be able to go home. I know we have been in this same position before where she shows so much promise and then comes a let down, so it would seem that I should be more cautious to show my excitement. But when you see your child go through so much....well, its just nice to see her recovery is for the time being, ahead of the curve.
