Clinic update

Mollie's ANC is 16,000 today. That's right. Three zeroes. That's because of the neupogen shots, but still, it's impressive.

Mollie is scheduled to begin long term maintenance (LTM) next week (Dec. 30) as long as her counts are above the cutoffs. Matt and I are totally exhausted, and we'll never stop worrying, but we are so glad to be where we are right now.

In other news, Mollie has been adopted by two chemo angels. From the chemo angels website: "Chemo Angels is a volunteer organization dedicated to adding a ray of sunshine to the lives of those undergoing IV chemo treatment." This program connects volunteer angels (people who have undergone chemo, family members of cancer patients/survivors, or just kind people) with cancer patients who are undergoing chemo. The angels send cards, letters, and little treats on a regular basis. Mollie has been so surprised by their special cards (with stickers!).


  1. WOW! Thank you for this good news update. It has put a big smile on my face. I am so excited that Mollie Girl is feeling better, and that you guys are HOME! Yay! Have a WONDERFUL Christmas. You deserve it so much. I love you all. XOXOXO

  2. Maintenance.......ah, so nice. Praying that Mollie stays right on track and you guys can join us in this "less tense" phase. Not real sure why I feel like it's less tense but at least the appointments are spaced out further so we can pretend to be more normal.

    Merry Christmas, I hope it's the best! And may you find health and happiness in the new year.
