Yesterday, we took her into the hospital for her normal labs and check of her skin. We got lots of GREAT news.
- Her weight is up from 7.75kg to 7.9.
- Her length is - longer. Somewhere around 72-75cm. She hates this part and is quite a squirmer.
- Her CBC is finally back into the "stellar" category. Her white count is up from 4.2 to 6.4, and her ANC is up from 1400 to 1900.
- No. More. MMF!
We are planning to go into the hospital for an infusion of IVIG as Clara has remained borderline low for 2 weeks. The doctors want to move us to having appointments every 3 or 4 weeks and so have decided they might as well just give her an IVIG dose so that they don't have to keep bringing us in weekly to see if it does or doesn't dip below her transfusion threshold.
The Boyle household is awfully happy. Without MMF, Alan and I even got to go to bed together for the first time in as long as we can remember. And it was the first time Alan has been to bed before midnight since before she was diagnosed. Alan's parents have been in town this week, and Clara has thoroughly enjoyed tossing Daddy and I off to the side and playing with her newest favorite play things! :-)
