|Blister on her eye-I am not looking forward to lancing this!|
Her WBC went down to 0.2. Going the wrong way baby girl! The BMT doc said that her MMF or Cellcept (spell?) may have been calculated at too high of a dose so he adjusted it (using a different AUC for those of you who know what that is). I asked what this all meant and he said that this drug is an immunosuppressant and it could actually be keeping the count lower and possibly even affect engraftment of her new cells -I sure hope not. Keep your fingers crossed. Come on cells!! She really needs those cells, her right flank has started to get a little wound drainage goop, and her blood infection may be hanging on. Docs also restarted Vanco and Tobra (antibiotics she has been on before along with the Merripenem)
So she is doing fine, still trying to open eyes, wiggling a little, and squeezing my fingers (yes, even with the paralyzing drug). We are trying to keep her comfortable and keep encouraging her to fight and let her know she is loved. Meanwhile, Grandma is helping take care of the rest of us LOVE our family.
