our leukemia warrior all smiles
Meet Avery

Pre-Chemo Prep

  • WBC: 37.4
  • Hgb: 8.8
  • Platelets: 71
  • Uric acid: 3.0
  • Potassium: 4.3

Avery received platelets around 1am and will have another this morning to get her count above 100 before beginning chemo today.

Uric acid is a little low, so she’s still on meds for that.

We’ll start watching ANC numbers as we start her therapy. If it falls below 500, she’s at a greater risk of infection. She is currently at 1.79 (in thousands).

She was nursing when Mom & Dad called this morning and in a really good mood. All smiles.

The LP (spinal tap) should be around 12-1pm today. It will be done in the room and she won’t be put to sleep for it.

No indication of what time they will start the big meds yet. The nurse suggested soon after LP is finished.

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/
