Kaylee had her blood labs this morning & I can barely contain my excitement over the news of her counts!! I finally got a call with her counts before dinner tonight.
This little one more than tripled her ANC count!!!! 😳🙌 Her ANC is so important bc it is the white cells in her body that can fight infection coming her way, so when that ANC count is low, we are pretty much confined to our house & maybe a really quick grocery stop to be sure she won’t get sick.
So, her ANC count went from 370 to 1,230 in a WEEK!! That is amazing & it’s all God!! Her hemoglobin also went up to 11.6! (huge answer to prayer as well!) Her platelet count remains steady too, so I am bouncing off walls to be able to get her back out on play dates & have friends over to visit! Happy happy happy!!!!
She has been cleared to start back on daily chemo as of tonight 😝 but at 1/2 the regular dose, so we are praying her counts remain steady. Her Nxt appt at the cancer clinic is Feb 9th, so thankfully no more blood labs until then. (K kinda freaked out when I took her for labs today crying “no arm blood!! No arm blood, mommy! It hurts!!” (This is bc of her labs last week for virus testing. The nurse had to get blood through one of the veins in her arm instead of a finger prick.) Once I assured her it was just going to be a finger prick today, she calmed down and did pretty good. Of course she was thrilled to get stickers when she was “alllllll done” with labs.
I would say today’s results are a huge relief and MAJOR answer to prayer and we cannot thank y’all enough for praying for our girl!
Less than 11 months left of this battle and we are still behind Kaylee cheering her on & relying on God to take this cancer & destroy it!!
Thank you again & we humbly ask you to please keep Kaylee in your prayers!
