Day +35 | Paizlee Davenport Stem Cell Transplant

Day +35

Chimerism came back at 86%, up from the first one we got back 12 days ago, which was 70%. Dr. Alice said itโ€™s still early. Come on 100%!! ๐Ÿ™

WBC- 4.1๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
Hemoglobin- 8.8 (Iโ€™m sure she will get blood with HD soon)
ANC (absolute neutrophil count)-2.26๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
Monocytes (turn into neutrophils)- 0.95๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
Lymphocytes (T cells & B cells)- 0.14 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Paizlee is following the same pattern as Kruz, I donโ€™t know if you remember all of Kruzโ€™s belly pain... but it all had to do with HD & the GI issues, we had to do a scope with Kruz to rule of GVHD, and weโ€™re having to probably do the same with Paizlee. Possibly Monday.

We just have to rule out her tummy issues arenโ€™t coming from GVHD (graft vs host disease). If itโ€™s GI issues, we can handle that, weโ€™ve dealt with this for years with Kruz. Our children are so sensitive to change. And post transplants comes with hurdles to get them back in a good place nutritionally.

Kyle & I had a meeting with kidney team and stem cell team today, expressed our concerns, and hopefully we have a plan now and goals to hit for discharge.

They have stopped all formula feeding, gave pedialyte the past two days and will start introducing a new, easier formula feed soon to see if she can tolerate it better. Chemo really disrupts the digestive tract, so itโ€™s a process. She tries to eat food, chemo just destroyed taste buds and being in kidney failure destroys appetite, but sheโ€™s trying to eat. She just doesnโ€™t eat enough to sustain her so weโ€™re figuring out what calorie formula she can tolerate through her g-tube feeds.

Sheโ€™s still her silly self ๐Ÿ’•
