The tired phase

Audrey has been comparing the blood results each day with their counterpart day from the last cycle. For example, today was day 4 since Monday's transplant so Audrey compared today's counts with day 4 from last cycle.

So far, the days are tracking almost exactly to what happened last round. Her counts are dropping slightly faster but along the same rise and fall pattern.

We expect that her ANC will be zero tomorrow as she is already starting to show the familiar signs of fatigue that accompany complete depletion.

This is the tired phase.

She is in the process of growing new bone marrow in all her bones throughout the body.

What a blessing that this is even possible.

Thank you for your prayers, love, and support.
