Tanner’s counts finally came in late last night. Her neutraphils are 390, which is better than we feared, but still severely neutropenic. Dr. Mixan called this morning and her IgG level was also low (that’s an antibody associated with respiratory immunity). So, we’re headed to clinic this morning for an IVIG transfusion. We’ll also hold all chemo until next Wednesday when we’ll go in for a counts check and see where we are. No school and neutropenic precautions until her counts are back up.
Tanner slept really well last night and feels good this morning, although she is still coughing. The IVIG transfusion might help her kick the virus she is fighting so we’ll hope for the best.
Glad the waiting is over… I hate waiting. Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes.
