Progress! This morning, my white blood cells and neutrophils were up from 0.3 and 0.02 to 0.4 and 0.09. Also, my hemoglobin rose from 9.1 to 9.6 on its own, which means that I probably won’t need any more blood transfusions until my next round of chemo (although I still need platelets for now). My oncology team remains optimistic about possibly discharging me this weekend. To top it all off, I had a nice two-hour visit with the whole family, including my mom. Feeling great today.
