Record High ANC of 4900!! Hemoglobin 9.9, Platelets 43. Her counts keep climbing. It really is strange to us that she hasn't needed infusions of red cells and platelets more often. Her last infusion was several days ago.
Her PICC line was removed...they no longer need it. Each day it seems as though another med is cut. Her care is manageable with just two lines now.
She tried a bit of jello last night...at least she put the spoon to her mouth, and touched the jello with her tongue. Baby steps are the key. We don't want to rush her. Nausea is still a constant thing. She struggled with keeping water down today.
When I saw her again today after being at home, I couldn't believe how much better she looked. Each day she makes improvements.
|PICC lines can be removed by a nurse at the bedside...no sedation required. She did alright, never easy to remove the stitches.|
|Bruises from the PICC line|
|Alice took this picture, after her hard work.|
|She wanted me to take a picture of her funny face...well this is it--an attempt to go crossed eyed.|
