It All Makes Sense

Lucy slept yesterday from 4pm to almost 6:30am today.  Minus the 35 minutes she woke up and screamed the whole time I did her dressing change and she took her meds.  That was fun!  She was also very short of breath and had no stamina at all yesterday.  Couldn't even do PT.

Today her bookd work came back and here is how it reads:

Hgb  7.6 (critical point is 8)
Wbc 0.2
ANC 0
Platelets 12,000 (critical point is 20,000)

So....she is getting blood and platelets and an extra helping of lipids right now.  She is tired and irritable.  Can't say I blame her!  Pulmonary function study at 11:30 and an EKG/Echo at 12:30. 

We are day +12 and still no ANC.  Docs are not too concerned.  They assured me that her body may respond differently after each round of Chemo.  I just pray those counts start coming up because until they do Lucy has to get that nasty G-CSF shot.
