Hannah did not make counts again today. However, her blood counts have come up a smidge. Her ANC went from 168 last week to 218 and her red blood and platelets are holding steady. Her ANC is still too low to continue on to the next leg of treatment, IM. She needs her ANC to be at 750 or above to continue getting any chemo. I wasn't surprised, as she has been tired and off color all week. I still hoped, though.
Our next appointment is Thursday and if her counts are high enough they will start chemo that day. Please pray for us that her counts rise and that she not get sick. It is really important at this stage of her treatment.
Hannah did get to start her physical therapy today. She loves it! The PT room has lots of toys, a slide, stairs, balls, balance beams, and more! I should have taken a picture but forgot. They evaluated Hannah and had her doing exercises. It went so well that she never knew it was anything more than getting to play.
What they discovered was that there is significant weakness in her left leg and that she continually favors her right. She has lost strength overall in her legs as well, so much, that they buckle on her without warning. We were given a little exercise routine to do at home that Hannah, actually thinks is a pretty good time, so we got that going for us!
I think all the PT "playing" really wore her out because she passed out as soon as car started rolling!
