October 14th, 2010-The wait will continue a little longer. UPDATED AGAIN.   17 comments

Charlotte went in this morning for her bloodwork and her neutrophil count was taking a little longer than the rest of the test results.  So Dr Diamond had the tech estimate the count and the number came back at 480.  Still a huge improvement over Monday’s 190 and last Friday’s 30.  But not enough to have her bone marrow biopsy done today as Dr Diamond was hoping for a number over 600.  There were lots of other numbers that looked great in her results, including 300K+ platelets, and hemoblogin and white blood cell counts were up as well.  The Drs all agreed that she is still looking very good.


We would like to extend a huge “Thank You” to everyone checking in today.  And “Thank You” for all of your prayers.  We are sorry that we don’t have the remission news yet that we are all waiting for.  I know we would feel better knowing the answers too.  If you still aren’t tired of thinking about Charlotte, we could use those prayers for Friday as well!



Dr Diamond called us back and wants Charlotte to come in tomorrow for the biopsy.  The estimate this morning had been off-her neutrophil count was actually 660 and there were blasts present.  The tech was unable to confirm if the blasts were or were not leukemia cells so Dr Diamond, knowing that she is healthy enough for the biopsy to have actually been done today, just wants to have it done and over with.

We go back in tomorrow afternoon.

So please change your prayer dates to Friday the 15th!
