Reba had her blood drawn at home this morning around 9am. We have been anxious to find out the results all day and finally Dr. Mavers called around 5:30pm with the good news.
It is day 11 after chemo and usually somewhere around day 10-14 is the danger zone where the white blood count gets very low. But we found out that her white blood cell count is actually really high, at 22,000. Her hemoglobin is 8.9 which is a little low but nowhere near low enough to warrant a transfusion. Platelets are 215, also great.
The best news, besides the fact that Reba doesn’t need to go to Stanford today, is that her albumin level has climbed yet again… It is now 3.9! We are amazed, and very hopeful that this a sign that the tumor is backing off.
