Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Sorry no update the last couple of days.  Marty's been getting his chemo at night (9:00 pm to about 3:00 am), the late nights are catching up to us both.  Marty is doing a lot of his sleeping in the morning/day and I sleep when I can as well.  So, here are his totals for the last few days:

MONDAY:
  • white blood cell - 1.4 (normal is 4.0-11.0)
  • hemoglobin - 9.2 (normal is 14.0-18.0)
  • platelets - 7,000 (normal is 140,000- 440,000)
  • glucose - 164 (normal is 70-110).  His glucose level is going up because of the steroids they are giving him.
  • He received 1 unit of platelets
TUESDAY :
  • white blood cell - 1.6 (normal is 4.0-11.0)
  • hemoglobin - 8.2 (normal is 14.0-18.0)
  • platelets - 5,000 (normal is 140,000- 440,000)
  • glucose - 148 (normal is 70-110).  His glucose level is going up because of the steroids they are giving him.
  • He received 1 unit of platelets and 1 unit of blood
WEDNESDAY:
  • white blood cell - 4.4 (normal is 4.0-11.0)
  • hemoglobin - 9.5 (normal is 14.0-18.0)
  • platelets - 5,000 (normal is 140,000- 440,000)
  • glucose - 160 (normal is 70-110).  His glucose level is going up because of the steroids they are giving him.
  • He will not be receiving any platelets or blood today
Tonight is his last dose of chemo for this 2nd round of chemo.  We will hopefully be going back to the RV sometime tomorrow.  Then we will have to stay in  Houston for at least another 25 days doing 3x weekly outpatient blood tests and transfusions (as needed).  We are praying that this round of chemo will put him into remissions, so we can move on to the next step.  Please continue praying for our family!

We also have 2 fundraisers going right now that will benefit Marty's Cancer Treatment Fund.  Please take a look and consider helping us raise the fund we need to pay for all the expenses associated with Marty's treatment!
