Not much has changed overnight. It wasn't a very good night for her fluid balance, yesterday they gave her more fluids than she put out, but that's partly because of extra meds yesterday and she got two units of blood and platelets. They're changing her sedative to ativan from propofol which will decrease slightly the amount of fluids she's getting. She did have a good night in the blood production department. Her WBC is up to .650. Her creatinine is stable at 1.4. Her bilirubin is up to 5.8 but we don't her neutrophils yet. They're going to try changing the settings on the ventilator after they change sedatives. They want to see if she'll do the work of breathing on her own with some pressure support. The machine has been doing all the work so her diaphragm hasn't been used which can make it weak.
Dawn's employer Go To Team is helping with the leukemia battle. Go To Team is sponsoring the $52 HLA typing fee for all their employees who register to be bone marrow donors before the end of the year! That's Awesome!
I finally got her neutrophil count for today: .428! Yesterday she was at .210. We need three straight days of .500 and greater to confirm engraftment.
