Day +12 | Stem Cell Transplant

Day +12

ANC- 2290
WBC- 5.3 
One more day w/ these counts means engraftment πŸ™Œ

Pain is still there. It’s been a long night/morning, lots of pain, hot packs, and no sleep (Explains for the minimal post πŸ˜†).

From our doctor: β€œThe chemistry is in order so I really think is just mucositis/C diff which is going to be ok soon”

Trying to wean IV meds/fluids/nutrition so we can skip a day on HD. Normally a person gets HD every 3 days or every other day, Kruz has got it 24 days straight. We have to give the protocol antibiotics, nutrition and pain management which are all fluid based, so it’s a fine line from keeping him from fluid overload with HD. Kidneys are fun, especially with stem cell mixed in...😳 praying we can move back to PD by end of next week. πŸ™

Todays prayer: for smooth HD today and keeping the heart rate down. 
Praise: COUNTS!!!! πŸ™Œ

Happy Sunday. β€οΈ were blessed. Best days are ahead πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼
