No Lumbar Puncture Today

Melanie was scheduled to have her first of four lumbar punctures today. She and my mom headed down to Greg's on Wednesday evening, ready to stay Wednesday and Thursday night there. They woke up and drove to the hospital for her early clinic today. Her blood draw was great! All of her counts were up from last week. YEAH! Her platelets were the same, but we will take that over dropping. The other thing that was high was the Cumadin in her blood. This is the medicine to help thin her blood. Because it was too high, they could not do the lumbar puncture today. Melanie will stop taking the Cumadin and they will check her levels in Logan next week. Depending on were they are, they will schedule her next clinic and an LP.

Since there was no need to stay over night tonight, they just went back up to Cache Valley. Of course, they did a little shopping (Costco) before leaving the Salt Lake Valley.

I feel a bit out of the loop these days. Without Melanie being down here, I don't get to see her much at all. I am so glad she is home and doing well though! Love you, Melanie. Hopefully I will get to see you soon!
