Friday +249 (Noon)

Just a quick update...

I forgot to post anything to the blog last night and we've been at the hospital since 7:00 AM today. Jackie required another unit of fluids this morning. She is still not feeling well at all. In fact, she now has an altered mental state and some substantial dizziness. She is tired and sleepy. They are going to do more CTs and MRIs of her head today. If things don't improve they will do a spinal tap next week to check for any viral infection. They are also checking for thyroid levels. We are definitely here until next week.

The good news is that her counts are VERY good. In fact, they are near perfect. Her platelets are at 280, her Hgl is at 12.1, her WBC count is above 8.0 with excellent neutrophil counts. She SHOULD be feeling better! She continues to run a low-grade fever, but hopefully this is as a result of the C-Diff. We will be meeting with the infectious disease doctor in a few minutes.

The other good news is that her bone marrow tests show no indicatons of CLL at all! In fact, it looks perfectly normal. It showed an elevated level of white blood cells, but this is expected given the fact she has an infection/fever. They still have one test that is not available, but they expect no surprises.

Until Later...
