Good news, good numbers

Beth is doing so well — her numbers are responding so positively, that she won’t need to be going to the MSS after tomorrow. That is, her hemoglobin went UP (from 9.5 to 9.9), her platelets went up (from 52 to 53 to 63), and her white count is holding up in the normal range. She’s supposed to be going to get some of the things she needs, but the only thing they’ve been giving to her are fluids and some minerals, in addition to her antibiotics. So after tomorrow, they’re going to just write her prescriptions for oral antibiotics, and she will probably be moved down to a weekly or bi-weekly testing schedule.

She still feels terrible — super tired all the time. And they say this will continue. But at least she’s out of the woods with her blood levels all going up.
