The good news is Melanie was not sick through the night! Thank goodness! It was a very LONG day at the clinic though. Which we knew it would be. We were there from around 8:40AM till around 3:30PM. They gave her 2 units of blood. They did not have to give her platelets like we thought they might. They went up on their own. From 18,000 to 19,000. LaDee, her transplant coordinator, said that was a good sign that her body made some platelets. Mel's body just seems to like to take its time. Both her nuetraphil and white counts were up some. They did not give her a neupogen shot today. So lets hope that her counts will go up on their own for Fridays visit! Melanie will be having a bone marrow biopsy on the 31st of March. This will give them what they need to make a decision on what to do. Wait for Mel's body to start cooperating, or do the second transplant. We will definately keep you all posted.
Melanie is fighting hard and just trying to spur those donor cells into action! Keep up the great work Melanie! You are incredible!
I Love you!
