Emily was admitted for neutropenia, her ANC was still too low to even register at this point. Fever when we left the ER was 103 and With still no ANC, her hemoglobin took a drop to 7 and her platelets took a big drop to 12! So, she needs both blood products. Platelets took a while to finally start and once they were going to start she had fever a 100.9. Thankfully the fever came down and she was able to get the platelets , they ended up coming up to 27, still pretty low for Emily and especially right now with them quickly dropping. We have to wait 4 hours to get the blood, so about 2am, so it will be a long night. Tomorrow we were scheduled to meet with the GI specialist, they are going to see if they can get them to come here, it will be a consult if they can come. They would also like a chest X-ray but would like to talk to the doctor in the morning about that. Right now it could be a 24 to 48 hour inpatient stay, but we will have to see how her counts do and if she has any other fevers. All of her chemo has been stopped for now.
Thank you for all of the love and thoughts. Emily is hanging in there and took the having to stay inpatient better than we thought. Her sister Brianna on the other hand, has a really hard time when Emily is not home.

Today has been a long day and it's not over yet! ENT did come by and sucked up the loose blood and then packed her nose with a gauze and she is very unhappy about this. They want it to stay for a couple of days! We were told that they would like Emily to stay overnight so they can get to the bottom of what is causing the bleeding that she continues to throw up! GI will be coming up tomorrow sometime to see what's going on since they think it's a possibility that maybe it is intestinal from the avastin! With her hemoglobin dropping that much again since last Thursday we don't want her to continue to go through throwing up that much blood each time!
She did get platelets earlier and they wanted them to be given much slower with steroids, Benadryl and Tylenol! Thankfully today she didn't have any reactions! Her heart rate has started to come down a little with continuous fluids, but should drop much more when she gets her blood transfusion!
Emily was moved from PCU and is now in a regular room and she has been pre medicated for her blood transfusion along with amicar and Zofran! She should be starting her blood transfusion soon!
Please continue to keep Emily in your thoughts! She has lost 3 lbs since early last week and thankfully tonight she did eat a little bit!
We will update tomorrow as we know more!
