Monday +40 (9:45 PM) CMV Update

Just a quick update. We just returned from the evening IV infusion. We got the results of today's CMV test. It seems her CMV viral load count increased during the last week in spite of the anti-viral IV infusions of Ganicyclovir. The count had increased from 2000 to 4000 over the last week. This is still a very low count. A high count can be as high as 200,000. Still, it likely means at least another 2 weeks of 2 (or possibly 3) times a day infusions. We will know more after speaking with the doctors tomorrow.

Until later,

Bruce and Jackie
From Rochester, MN

It seems like it's hard to get a break here. I guess all in all Jackie is doing well. I just wish the road was less rocky. I am sure that soon things will be much improved. Both of you keep on keepin on.
