What a busy fun week!
The girls had a good Christmas. Kamiah loves her new baby gear, and Mariska is in heaven playing with her doll house.
Merry Christmas! a little late, but with love all the same.
On to an update. Mariska's white blood count, her Neupogen level especially dropped down to dangerous levels on Mondays labs. Because of this she now gets Neupogen shots at night. :) I'm glad they are TINY needles. I've still made Sam give them. Before her transplant she needed shots twice a day to thin her blood. So you would think this would be a walk in the park.. not so much. Still dislike needles. HA!
Because it was her neupogen level. (They are the fighters to help keep you healthy) means if she got sick she has nothing to fight off the sickness, sicking to think something simple could kill her. We stayed home from all the fun family events happening on Christmas eve and day. Wont lie it was so nice not having to run around and just enjoy being together.
Tonight she will have shot #5. The hope was the injections would boost her numbers up back to normal... This hasnt happened. She was at 200 (lower then this we wont talk about what happens, super low and high brings out the weird nastys) Her level today was 400. Improving but still low. under 500 she needs shots to boost it.
She'll get another 5 day treatment then labs to see what's happening. Everyone we run into at PCMC are shocked when we keep coming back twice sometimes 3times a week! we are too... we love all the staff but would rather miss them. =D
Keep her in your prayers. She feels healthy and acts pretty normal, its been hard to tell her she's in a scary places and cant do ANYTHING because of the risk of getting sick.
We're doing lots of infinity playing and puzzle making. Wont forget about eating nothing but junk from our loving friends.
House Progress - We stopped by our house today and we have walls, windows, electrical, plumbing, insulation and part of the roof!
