It was so great for everyone to get Team White back together but especially for Carmen and Trevor. It was so sweet to see them both light up when they saw each other.
Grandma and Grandpa White have had their work cut out for them keeping up with Trevor over the past week. We are all together until Thursday when Trevor returns
Today marked Carmen's first out patient visit to the Pediatric Ambulatory Unit (PAU) to receive her chemotherapy treatments, which included another lumbar puncture, blood work, a series of other drugs and the changing of her Piddycone dressing.
I am typing this post in the waiting room as the nurses monitor Carmen's response to the treatment. Carmen's blood work just came back and I am happy to report that her ANC levels are now 639, up from 512 on Sunday. Her hemoglobin levels are now 12.6 up from 10.6 on Sunday.
These are all positive numbers, meaning that the chemotherapy is working and her body is responding well to everything. The Doctors are extremely encouraged with all the lab results.
So far, she continues to handle the treatments like the Warrior Princess that she is.
A few pictures of the day.
