No Transfusions This Week
Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Today's Clinic Visit
Emily had clinic today and thankfully today she didn't need any transfusions. Platelets are still low at 42 (they were 32 on Thursday of last week so didn't go up much with platelets on Friday)!
After counts she had her First Pass Scan (nuclear heart scan) which was pretty easy and she did well. Pic is of Emily waiting for the heart scan. Hopefully we will have results tomorrow on the heart scan of how things are looking.
Please continue to keep Emily in your thoughts and love. She is doing well though. She goes back Friday for counts!

Stem Cell Boost
Today was a long day in the bone marrow unit but she did have a great set of nurses taking care of her. We stopped by clinic prior to bone marrow to get accessed since she was nervous about getting accessed by someone else!
The day went pretty well, she had counts down and everything is dropping. Platelets and hemoglobin dropping so she will definitely be going back tomorrow to get platelets and possibly red blood depending on how she is feeling or if drops anymore. Over the stem cell infusion went great, no problems or issues. Blood pressure remained on the lower side with heart rate being up. We are not sure why the heart rate is up but dr gowda said we could check her heart next week by doing a scan of some sort if it is still up. She had 4 hours of fluids after the stem cells.
Tonight she is doing well, she seems tired after a long day and agitated but we are home and for that she is happy!
Thank you for continuing to keep Emily in your thoughts!
