Low Counts

Back to clinic today.  Colin received his monthly IV chemo and another dose of antibiotics. The rash seems to be going away a little each day. His counts are now low (ANC 347) so we're still home-bound. Due to the low counts he will not receive his oral chemo for at least a week. An IGG test was also taken. If it comes back low he will be given a boost via transfusion to help his body combat the viral infection.  We should know the results in a couple of days. Colin did start the steroid today which should help improve his counts however should he spike a fever while his counts are low he will be admitted.

Four days at Yale this week ... let's hope we can stop the pattern!!
