Thursday +15 (10:30 AM)

I walked into the room this morning and Jackie was packed and ready to leave! It seems the docs have given her hope that she might be headed back to the apartment today. Her sinus CT scan from yesterday was negative. The docs are going to discuss her dismissal as a team. If they say "no" she is going to be disappointed.

Her counts have bounced around a little this morning. Her RBC decreased from 8.6 to 8.5 today. Her WBC decreased from 2.4 to 2.2. Her platelets continue to skyrocket! Her platelets increased from 75 yesterday to 99 today. At this rate she will be "normal" within 4 or 5 days. This probably won't happen as counts tend to bounce up and down. As long as the overall trend is UP then there is no need for concern.

She ran only minor, low-grade fever last night and this morning. I'm going back to the hospital room to await the decision from the team of docs. I'll post if she is released.
