1-Blood counts all good. Platelets are actually above 200,000 (normal is between 150,000-400,000!), white counts are up and red are holding steady.
2-Bone Marrow from last week (day 21) showed that her blasts (abnormal cells) were down to 9% -they had been over 85% upon diagnosis. The biopsy also showed that she was making her own good cells.
3-Bone Marrow biopsy went extremely well today. Casey did not need any medication other than numbing and she did very well. Sample was very easy to get. Doctor is pretty confident that these results will come back showing her in remission (blasts less than 5%). Should have confirmed results by Friday.
4-As long as BM Bx shows remission will get chemo next T-TH as an outpatient.
5-Micki has tested as a 13 out of 14 match!!!! they will still test the other siblings to see if any are a 14 out of 14 match. GREAT NEWS!!!
6-Met with SCT team to keep plans moving for transplant. The plan will be to move forward with this after she recovers from next chemo and things are set with a donor.
Lots to be thankful for today. God is good. Love to all!
