Back on the Roller Coaster
So, Hannah's blood counts were not high enough to start the next phase of treatment. Infact, they are so low that she is neutropenic. That means her ANC (the number that tells us her overall immunity and germ fighting skills) are under 200, which is the danger zone.
All of her appointments this week are now on hold. Monday we go in again to recheck her blood counts. Until then we just wait, wash our hands, and try not to get sick. I am beyond bummed, but I did half expect it. When Hannah woke up this morning, she actually looked gray. On the plus side, we have been through this before, so I know what to expect and that it will be ok.
Hannah, being Hannah, did, of course, rock a tutu at Children's today. Everyone commented and she was so polite with her "Thank you". She sounded so grown up. Even in a bright pink tutu.
