All about numbers
Doctor came in and said they are going to stop her Uric Acid meds. She doesn’t have very many WBCs left, so they expect that number to continue dropping on its own.
They’re not too worried about potassium right now; they expect those numbers to trend in the right direction as chemo progresses.
They will continue to offer Tylenol every 6 hours, but won’t give it unless needed. They don’t want to mask a fever.
They will most likely stop IV fluids soon since Avery is still eating well. That will mean she won’t be hooked up to anything other than her chemo meds when administered.
She has one chemo med today at 4:15pm.
She looks really good and they still believe yesterday’s misery was caused by a reaction to one of the medications.

How can you help from home?
First, prayer. We need to continue to storm the gates of heaven for Avery.
Their biggest tangible needs are food and money. Even with insurance, the costs are undoubtedly going to continue to add up.
For starters, we set up a GoFundMe with a tentative amount that will most likely go up as we continue: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-baby-avery-beat-leukemia
To help them stay fed while at the hospital, we’ve found DoorDash gift cards are best: https://doordash.launchgiftcards.com/
