All of her blood counts look good so we will just be hanging out today. No transfusions necessary. Millie also joined another study, so now she is on 2. This study is the first of it's kind and it will be looking at neutrophil nets in transplant patients. I am so grateful for everyone that has paved the way for Millie to get the treatment she is on and I am happy that we can help in some small way for those that follow after us. Millie even signed her name to the document herself, saying YES, I want to help. So proud of her.
Grandpa Jeff spent the night with Millie and it was so nice to get to see Brady for a second. Thank you Jeff! Thank you also to my mom and Sherry for stepping in and taking Austin today. It is wonderful to know that there is always someone there ready and willing to take over when I'm in a jam.
So far Millie is doing alright. Her stomach is very sick and she is bordering a fever, but we have been able to keep it at bay. This is all very normal with her counts coming in. Her body is trying to figure out what in the world is happening. It's called Engraftment Syndrome. Hopefully this is the worst of it, because I know that once she does engraft we are facing a whole new ball game. I can't wait for the day when there isn't so much worry surrounding every moment of every day. Until then we continue to pray and count our blessings.
Despite the stomach aches she had today, she still had a wonderful day and she was joking around with our nurses and techs. She even showed off a little by doing some sit ups. Go Millie Go!
