In the midst of all the madness, I just heard some of the best news ever....Reya's body has welcomed my boys cells back with 'Open Arms' (love Journey) and her white count increased overnight from .4 to 2.1. Her neutrophils went from 400 to over 1800. Amazing!!! There is a possibility that we can go home by early next week. Reya is being transitioned off her IV meds to PO meds (by mouth). We expected 4-6 weeks, but look at God!!! The docs tried to reign in the excitement with the customary 'knock on wood' or 'recently we told a few patients to prepare to go home, and everything fell apart', but I'm banking on nothing but up from here. Thank you Lord!!
Mireya's platelet and hemoglobin counts are down. We hope to see a rise in those numbers and avoid transfusions. We're believing Mireya's counts will continue to increase. We're also specifically praying about GVHD (Graft vs. Host Disease), that there will be no rejection as Jalen's (SUPER) cells take up residence in Reya's body. For now, awesome news and an excellent start to a unfolding process. Thank you for continuing to pray for the success of this transplant.
Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say Rejoice. Phillipians 4:4
