Scans Completed

Mommy holding Emilys fingers during the scan.

MIBG/CT spect was done and finished earlier today.  Emily did great like she always does and actually slept during most of the scan.

Emily had her counts checked on Tuesday when she was accessed and we got a call last evening letting us know that her hemoglobin was 8.9 and platelets were 29, so both have dropped since last Thursday evening when they were checked.  So they will be checking them again in the morning to see if she will need anything at all.

Seems that bad weather is on its way here, so hopefully clinic and visit with Dr Sholler won't be too long, but we will see. We haven't received any results as of yet, but Dr. Sholler was not in today so they were not looked at by an oncologist until she comes in tomorrow. Stress is just a bit high still, but hopefully all will be well in the morning.   We have honestly laid low while being here, there are a lot of sickness out there.  This time at the Renucci House they put us in a room that has a kitchen which has been really nice and we are so happy they did.  Especially with Emily needed her shots and they need to be refrigerated, it has been very nice.
Thank you all for your love, support and thoughts.
