Good news today -- my white count is at 2500, neutrophils at 620. That means I'm no longer neutropenic, but they still won't let me have a salad. My iron and platelets are still on the low side, so there's a possibility I'll need a transfusion sometime this weekend. So far I've made it over 24 hours without a fever, so they are going to start removing some of my meds to see what happens. They're starting with the one that affects my vision, so I'm really happy about that.
I asked the doctor if he could give me a ballpark idea of when I can go home, and he said possibly as early as the 15th of this month. They are going to continue the Neupogen shots since they appear to be helping. So my prayer requests specifically today are that I will remain free of the fevers, that my counts will continue to rise, and that I can go home next week. It's a little scary to let go of the antibiotics -- kind of like losing my training wheels or something. But I know that God is the one who has kept me alive up to this point, and that He will continue to do so until He is finished with me. Thank you all so much for your prayers.
