Hospital Update

As Jordyn sleeps in her hospital bed my thoughts turn to appreciation to Jessica.  Thursday after her last dose of cytarabine Jessica knew Jordyn was not doing well. I wanted to relax and sleep and stay at home but Jessica wanted to take care of our girl.  So we called the oncologists and they were ok not sending us to the ER.  But around 7:30 pm Jessica took Jordyn to the ER knowing that she wouldn't get to bed till 2 am maybe.  And I am so glad she did.  Jordyns blood sugar was down to 57 but it is up to 81 this morning.  Her hematacrit is at 25. Much lower and she may need a blood transfusion.  Her ANC is down to 200 meaning she has very fewer neutrophils to fight infection.  My ANC may be around 4000 to give you an idea of how low that is.    Her platelets are also low at 103.  Here they are giving her IV Zofran q 6 he and IV Ativan q 6 hr and she is still throwing up. She is also getting IV fluids.  All of which she really needed.  Thanks for bringing her in Jessica.  Thanks to everyone for your prayers and support!
