Come On Blood Levels!!!

posted Apr 12, 2013, 8:11 AM by FightingFor Mya

I came down last night to relieve Ray and to see how Mya is doing. We had an Ok night, she had some pain around midnight, so we gave her some Oxy to help her through it. Got back to sleep around 2am because our roommate is struggling as well with his pain level.

This morning the Oncology team came by to see how Mya is doing and to discuss the CAT scan scheduled for today. Mya's ANC level is at 140, up from 130. So, she is definitely going in the right direction, just at a snail's pace! :( As for the CAT scan, they are going to fit us in today. The nurse needs to inject a dye, then we wait for an hour, then go down to get it done. Mya will need to be sedated, but the procedure itself will be pretty quick - only about 15-20 minutes. Hopefully, this will show us WHAT IS CAUSING HER PAIN! It is really frustrating right now. All of the treatments have been going pretty well, and now we hit this speed bump.

Once we understand what is causing this issue, we can address it and move on. Unfortunately, no one is talking about a release date. So, we have no idea HOW long we will be here. That in itself is a little depressing.

After we get the results, I'll post again to keep everyone up-to-date.
Hope everyone has a good weekend!
