BMT +63 (Tuesday, day 79)

Hemoglobin 11.1 (11.5 will be normal!)

Platelets 152!!!! Normal!!!

ANC 1100. (White blood cells up to 2.0 – normal is 4.0+)

Daddy should visit us more often. Every time he ges here Naomi has an increase in blood counts. During her appointment today, we talked with her team here about transitioning to home. Dr. Margolis texted Dr. Rashid in Las Vegas to start making that happen. He thinks he can send us home in 1-2 weeks. 

We need to have home infusions available for me to continue her antifungal and IV fluids there. She will continue to have labs twice a week in Las Vegas to be monitored and screened for viruses. She is most at risk for viral infections because of the chemo she received. Because she had a bone marrow transplant, she is on antirejection meds to help her new marrow grow. She is also on antivirals. So her immune system will not necessarily respond on its own and may need infusions if she does contract anything. 

Her team all agreed though that she is doing well enough to go home which will really be good for all of us to be together while we will still continue to maintain very careful exposure for her. It might be a challenge to find a new normal but we are all ready to try. 

Today we had a normalish day with Daddy here. After clinic we stopped at Trader Joes (Naomi’s second time since transplant in a store). Then Naomi went into Target for the first time in at least 5 months. I think December was her last time in a store. We hiked around in the Santuary Woods and found these stone structures for photos. But best of all was how calm the little ones were having both Mommy and Daddy.
