Friday +158 (Noon)

We have today's blood counts for Jackie. Her RBC (Hlg) level has dropped below acceptable levels. Her RBC (Hgl) is now at 7.9. For this reason they are infusing 2 units of whole blood. Below 8 requires transfusion. Her WBC count continues to drop slowly. It is currently at 3.7. Her platelets are also taking a hit. They have dropped to 128. Her platelets and WBC counts are still within acceptable limits. They would transfuse platelets if they were to drop below 20.

The fresh blood should give her more energy and help her to feel better.

Should anything change I will post the changes immediately.

Until later...

Bruce and Jackie
From Rochester,MN
