The Big Day +80!!!!
Today is the big day! It's day +80. Anna had seven appointments yesterday and today had her bone marrow aspirate. This is where they take a sample of her bone marrow as well as a skin biopsy. We will find out in the days to come if there is any remaining cancer cells. Tomorrow she will have three appointments and then two more on Thursday. On the 19th, we will have the post day 80 conference with the green team to discuss the findings from this week as well as having her Hickman line removed. We then have a "departure clinic" scheduled for the 22. As it stands, it looks as if she will be "released" from SCCA care on the 24th. Please pray all goes well and that all tests come back clear! I was very excited this morning at Anna's blood sugar numbers! When needing to fast for procedures, she is not to take the long acting dose of insulin at night and her number was 109!! The target number is 80-120. This gives me hope that her blood sugar is stabilizing with the prednisone taper.
