Dec 17th: Week 3 Post MIBG therapy, Emily has had a pretty good week, she is eating well also gained a pound (YAY) and seems to have energy. Her counts are steadily dropping, there is a trend of them steadily dropping. Platelets were low (21) Tuesday, but they wanted to hold off to see if they would come back up, Friday platelets were 7, so she received a transfusion. Emily's hemoglobin also dropped Friday, so she will get a transfusion on Monday. Being that we are only a week from Christmas, we are being careful not to get Emily around a lot of germs and land ourselves in the hospital. So far so good though!! Send Emily lots of love and she is loving all the Christmas cards, so thank you so much!! Have a great weekend.
Please also send out a lot of love, thoughts and prayers for some other families fighting NB right now that could use some love right now: Ethan Hallmark , Hayley Kudro andJoshua Johnson!!
Tomorrow night marks a start to our journey (its been a year) and December 23rd marks the day we learned that Emily had Neuroblastoma.
