I still need to take Millie's hair picture for her December update, YICKS I'm behind, I will have to add those in a day or so when I get it done.
Height: 11.1 cm
Weight: 20.1 kg
Two Weeks later our home health nurse, Dylan came out to do Millie's blood work. Her ANC was now 800, but they still weren't comfortable upping her dose so we will wait until her January clinic appointment before making any changes. We did find out that her red blood cells were low and with how pale she has been they decided to do a blood transfusion. The girl is trying to keep things interesting for her last couple months of treatment and I wished she'd knock it off already :).
From the bag...
Through the filter...
Thank you to the random stranger that donated so Millie could have a good Christmas, and Thank you to Andy and Nancy for babysitting Austin last minute. I don't know what I would do without the help of my family.

Our home health nurse, Dylan comes over a lot to test blood levels. He has become a permanent fixture in our home.
Millie teaches Austin the piano.
Last but not least Brady and I FINALLY painted our front entryway and upstairs. We love it!
We have had a crazy couple of weeks, but we are grateful for all the love and support we have been shown. Millie being hospitalized took us completely by surprise and was a huge wake up call. Sometimes we forget how fragile Millie's immune system is since she is such a tough cookie. Millie's had a very hard time rebounding this time when her counts plummeted, but we have finally reached an ANC of 800 and she will restart her chemo tonight.
11/18/11 ANC 100- slight fever, continue antibiotic, stay at hospital again.
