Mardi Gras Medical Update

It's the Mardi Gras Mambo, mambo, mambo,
Mardi Gras mambo, mambo, mambo,
Mardi Gras mambo-o-o-o, down in New Orleans.

Well, I might not be able to Mardi Gras Mambo in NOLA or even bake our king cake here, but I do have good neutrophil news. 0.35! Yea! I'm excited!

The neupogen shots they're giving me are making me feel crummy, but I now see hope of getting out of this place. My psyche needs it, if nothing else. Mike says our daffodils are all blooming. I need to see them.

Oh Becky, I am so happy to hear that your neutrophil counts are climbing. Yes, you need to get home to see those daffodils.

I'm real excited that your neutrophil went up, up and up. That sure was great news.
Sounds like you will be heading home soon and will be in time to see your daffodils blooming.

Love your hat..... :-)
I'll still keep praying for you.

Such good news about the neutrophils, Becky! Keep up the good work!

No daffodils here in the Boston area (yet) but I do hope you get home to enjoy yours.

Hi Becky - certainly no daffs here in VT yet - just the foot of snow we got yesterday.
Terrific news about your neutrophils! You'll be home in no
time, but don't rush it...
