Day + 10 and + 11

Nothing much is happening here. Sunday and Monday were both good days. She is well on her way to engraphing.   Monday Mia's ANC (absolute neutrophil count) was at 100.  It needs to be over 500 for two days in a row for her to have engraphed.  She is feeling a little down.  As her body begins to produce neutrophils, they begin doing what they are supposed to be doing, which is fight infection. The doctors say that sometimes that can make a person feel like they have the flu.  Monday we cut back her continuous pain medicine in half.  She is still on oxygen and everything else.  But every day we are getting closer to leaving the hospital.
Monday is craft show day.  Mia is making a turkey.
