the final drops of chemotherapy are going through my sister's tube. She is sooo relieved about that! Today and yesterday, they made the drip much slower which really seemed to help lessen the side effects. She was not nearly as wrestless, hot, or nauseous during the treatments today or yesterday, so we are very happy about that.
Her white blood cell count is less than .2 today, which begins the "bottoming out" phase. I knew her immunity would bottom out and that would be expected. It's actually more than expected though...it's part of the plan of completely wiping those cells out. Then hopefully the good stem cells they put back in her during her transplant on Thursday will take over her system.
So tomorrow (Wed.) is a day of rest for her, then the bone marrow (stem cell) transplant is Thursday.
And actually now, at this moment, the chemo is completely done!! Whoo-hoo! Way to go, Sis!!!
Thanks for your prayers for her!!
