Wednesday +219 (Morning)

Just a quick update. Last week Jackie received the results of her latest blood work. Her WBC and ANC levels had improved slightly. She is still neutropenic with an ANC of only .4 (400) but they elected to not give her a growth factor shot and to wait another week to see how she is responding. Her platelets had also dropped to 141. While this is not bad, it could signal some sort of GvHD problem as she continues to taper her Cyclosporine levels. If she is having any GvHD issues they are not presenting. She has no rashes, etc. The good news is that her RBC (Hgl) level was up somewhat. It was 11.2 which is pretty good for her.

All-in-all she is feeling well. She continues to have periods of fatigue but they aren't too bad. She will receive another blood test tomorrow so we hope there will be some improvement in her white blood cell and neutrophil levels.

Until later....

Bruce and Jackie
