Day 14 – Morning Update – Discharge from Hospital Day September 27 2011

My new baby stem cells are doing great! White blood cells are 2.8 and my absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is at 2.5. However, I remain anemic with a hemoglobin of 9.5 and my platelets are flat at 19. I will be getting a platelet transfusion this morning before I am discharged from the University of Colorado Hospital to stay at the The Timbers Hotel.
I received a platelet transfusion at 7 AM which brought my platelet value from 19 to 41.
