Weekly stats

Tali's trip to the hospital for her weekly exam was short and sweet.

Some of the blood counts are on the rise while others have dropped a bit. (Fortunately, no infusions were necessary today.)

  • Platelets climbed from 78 to 119 (still considered low until they climb to over 150)
  • White blood cells increased from 1.7 to 2.4 (still considered low until they climb to over 6.0)
  • ANC improved from .60 to .90 (still considered low until they climb to over 1.5)
  • Red blood cells dropped from 3.17 to 2.97 (these need to get above 3.70)
  • Hematocrit dropped from 27.6 to 26.1 (this needs to get up above 33.0)
The feedback from the doctors is that Talitha is still improving but the counts are coming back slower than they'd prefer.

They want her to come every other week now instead of weekly so I'm taking that as a positive sign.

We'll just continue to do our best to keep watching, praying, and staying positive.
