I can honestly say I’ve never seen a doctor let alone doctors be happy a patient developed a fever. They entered my room saying someone spiked a fever like I had done something great.
Unexplained fevers and bone pain indicate engraftment in cells.
I have had both now.
I received blood infusion today and potassium too.
Eating is difficult but I’ve managed to keep my meals down today.
Today I had the final chemo infusion.
Doctors are very pleased with my progress and think I will be released from the hospital by the end of the week. Hopefully, they’re right!
My doctors are preparing to release me tomorrow. I’m their star patient on the floor.
My only issue is eating and holding down what I eat. It’s a job at times.
They’re transitioning from nausea medicine iv drip to pill. I’m on a lot of medications last I can’t even tell you what I’m on. The next step is to the hotel for the next eighty-five days.
Day 13- In order to go home, my ANC needs to be 500 or more to go home. I was at 600+ close to 700 yesterday morning. Which they said my numbers have been climbing. Well, this morning the dr came in and said I’m amazing. She told me what my number was yesterday and then told me what it is now…1400. She said that is incredible. By the time I get into the hotel, my number could be in the normal range or almost. ANC measures immunity. I’m killing it! Still have a hard time eating and keeping things down. It’s my only hangup. But otherwise, I’m good
