I honestly have lost track of what treatment # we are on. Isabel went in on Thursday for her IV push treatment. Her counts were low and she had to have a platelet transfusion.

Jen had to take her into the hospital Saturday night due to a fever.  Her platelet count was 2. Normal is 300, and this was after having a transfusion. She has spots on her body, due to having low hematocrit levels (20.7), which causes a bruising like effect. Bruising easily enough that she caon't have her blood pressure taken as often as needed, the tightness of the cuff would cause bleeding. Her heart rate was up to 150. She won't be released until 24 hours of being fever free.  At about 2:00 her temp was 102. She is will be undergoing a few transfusions today to help her get better.
