Team Maggie Day 10 Evening Update
It’s been a remarkable day! Let’s have mom, Lauren tell it
We have had a good day so far in room 634!
Maggie had a fairly good nights sleep last night and then around 5 am started spitting up some big bloody secretions so they ordered her platelets and she got those early this morning.
As those were infusing her nurse came in with this mornings labs..she has a white blood cell count of 0.1 and an ANC of .08! I was so overjoyed!! It looks like Lucas’ cells are starting to make themselves at home!! They said she is a superstar and this is earlier than they expected! You go Maggie!!!
She is still in pain from the sores but you can tell its improving and she’s able to spit out the secretions better today. She even went for a walk and did 2 laps on the bike after her bath!! Amazing what a few white blood cells can do for you!!
Maggie’s liver numbers were also down even more today and her weight and belly size were down too..yay!!!
She still is having higher than normal blood pressures but the patch is helping. Her bleeding times were also off this morning but they said its because her vitamin k is low so that was added to her TPN today and they expect those labs to look better tomorrow.
Considering how she was just 2 days ago today feels miraculous to me and I am sooo thankful and happy! I know we will have ups and downs but I am cherishing this day and praying for even better days!!
Grow cells grow!!!
