Kate's counts today were better! She's technically still neutropenic (ANC of 450) but she no longer has a fever and is feeling good so they let us go. Also, her hemoglobin is 8.2 and appears to be on the rise as well. I was very grateful to see her doctor in the hospital and for him to say exactly what I wanted to hear. He told me that the drastic change in her counts can't necessarily be explained but that "it didn't mean anything bad". So good to hear!
Kate's chemo is on hold until we go to the clinic on Thursday. The counts should be high enough by then to restart the chemo and we'll be back to business as usual. This was just a little bump in the journey to a cure.
