The count we have been referring to is her white blood cell count. When her immunity bottomed out, it was measured at less than .2--they don't measure any lower than that. It has slowly come up just tenths of a point day by day, then yesterday it was 1.0. And here's the aweswome part....Today it is---
The word is that her count needs to above 2 in order to come home 2 weeks after the BMT. From how it looks right now, it looks like she'll be home by the end of the week!
This is the story of my sister Melissa as she amazingly lives and loves life after being diagnosed with lymphoma. She is 32 years old, and has been married for 9 years to Doug. They have three children: Caleb (6 years) Lauren (4 years), and Baby Audrey (2 years). As her sister, I am proud to be able to journal her story... for the world should be inspired by her.
