Abby admires her magically purple tongue with her magic mirror.
Feeling better and better....
We can see the sun shining now... Abby's is improving quickly now.
Abby's white blood cells (WBC) are multiplying fast!
Her ANC, (Total # of WBC) x (% of Neutrophils), has been ZERO for weeks (ANC is the indicator of the health and vitality of the blood). Because of the seriousness of Abby's infection, the goal is for Abby's to be at least several thousand.
Abby's ANC was ZERO yesterday and today it is 748! Praise God. Abby has a fever of 101.5 today and her wound still looks yucky, but we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel, and barring something unforeseen, we can begin to believe she has turned the corner and is making a comeback now!
Still a long ways to go, but we wanted you to get to share in some good news after so many days of waiting, praying and waiting some more.
