Disclaimer: This in NOT Jenna writing this new report (lower your expectations) it’s her mom, Lisa.
Jenna asked if I would update you all, so I will give you a quick review. First the very GOOD NEWS! Jenna has neutrophils! Early this morning lab tests showed she had 350, later this afternoon they are up to 650! Now if she can keep putting up numbers like these, we will be talking discharge.
One potential problem for getting out of here is that Jenna has been extremely tired and feeling very crummy for about 5 days now. She has no energy and no appetite. It’s not for lack of effort that she isn’t eating, but today the doctors suggested Marinol she took one dose and it seems to have back fired. Jenna is even more tired and dizzy thus she doesn’t feel like eating. She could do a commercial for Scared Straight or “this is your brain on drugs”. She is not enjoying it.
So she hasn’t been able to celebrate or appreciate the great news of her high neutrophil count. Crap.
That’s the latest from St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester. I am sure Jenna will be back soon, and she will have so much more to say.
Thanks to everybody for all the email, facebook notes, prayers, cards, offers to visit etc. It is much appreciated by Jenna’s family.
