I didn’t actually run down the street screaming pulling my hair from the roots, but I wanted to. Tanner’s counts were up, but barely. She’s at 430… anything below 500 is considered severely neutrapenic and below 1000 is neutrapenic. Carie assured me it is normal to have this happen sometimes and that after all the chemo she has taken, sometimes it takes the body a while to recover from a counts hit. So, same old, same old restrictions and come back next week for her monthly clinic visit. Still no oral chemo, but they will give her a dose of vincristine and she will have a lumbar puncture with methotrexate next week, regardless.
Stick a fork in us.
