Day +26

Yesterday was day +26 for Aubree, it was a very important day because she en-grafted!!! Her bone marrow transplant is considered a success. I am so excited, I waited till today to say anything because her numbers had to be above 500 two days in a row. Today her ANC was 800! Her body is working so hard. Today the Doctors are talking home. It doesn't meant that we will go home tomorrow, but sometime in the next week. She has to be able to take all her meds orally first. Today she will get a NG tube, this is a tube that goes in her nose and down to her stomach. They will start feeding her slowly to see if she can keep it down. She was eating earlier this week but she is no longer eating. The NG tube will help her stomach stretch out so that she can tolerate bigger amounts in her stomach. So fingers crossed she will!
