We did it everyone!!! After 34 days at MD Anderson I have official made it home and am so beyond happy🤗. Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers, it’s the only reason I’m where I am today 😘
Well Casey was finally transferred to MD Anderson this morning-arrived about 1015am. She has been in the emergency room (their way of admitting patients) since then. She has been seen by the leukemia team and evaluated.
There are currently no beds available, so she will remain in ER until one opens up. They have done a repeat bone marrow biopsy (BM bx) because they need to send out for additional tests. The preliminary BM bx appears to be a myeloid form of acute leukemia (AML). There are however different sub groups and we will not have that information back until early next week. They are going to give her another unit of blood today to help her feel a little better. She has not had a fever for over 24 hours, but is real tired.
Chemo may not start till Monday or Tuesday. The goal is to get as much information about her type of leukemia to give her the best treatment to fight it. They will continue to monitor her and give supportive treatment (IV fluids, IV antibiotics, and blood products as needed).
She remains in positive spirits, is glad to be at MD Anderson, and is ready to get this game rolling.
Will post updates as available.
