Engraftment is taking place

I just got back to the hospital. Beth had only one mild fever this afternoon. Her white blood cell count was .10 yesterday and .29 today (for normal folks it’s over 5.5). But the increase in white cells is the first sign that engraftment is taking place. And it means she has her own ability to fight off infections. So much so that they discontinued one antibiotic, the vancomycin.
