Monday Counts

We had our follow up appointment in the clinic on Monday and things are looking better. Kate's hemoglobin was 8.6 so we didn't need a blood transfusion. Her platlets started to go up and there was evidence that her bone marrow had started to kick in as well (ANC of 230). So we had a short clinic visit and will head back on Thursday. If her ANC is 750 or greater we will be able to start the Maintenance phase of treatment. If not, she'll have another week off until the counts more fully recover.

This is great news. I don't know what "maintenance phase" means but it sure sounds nice.
