Leukemia - How is Jemma? - Day 60

This is how I know Jemma is feeling good. She spent a lot of time upside-down on the couch over the past few days.
She became a pro at the hula-hoop in less than 10 minutes yesterday.


She has also been dancing.

As you probably know Jemma is in a club that does dance performances during Fasching. Fasching is the German carnival or Mardi Gras. She is currently not allowed to attend dance class due to her Leukemia, but she has a video of her classmates performing the dance. Whenever she has energy she practices at home in hopes that she will be able to perform in February 2013.

Today we went in for a blood check. Her platelets have improved significantly since the last check on Monday, but her leukocytes have fallen even lower. A normal number for leukocytes is between 5,000 and 14,500. Jemma's was only 800. That means that her immune system is very weak. Chemotherapy is still currently on hold and another blood test is scheduled for Monday.
