A blood check was scheduled so we thought we were in for a quick visit, but Jemma needed another platelet transfusion so we spent most of the day at the hospital. Her blood is still very weak and hasn't done much regeneration on its own. Low hemoglobin, leukocyte and platelet levels are not uncommon at this stage of treatment. Therefore, chemotherapy is still on hold while we wait for her blood values to improve. Wednesday is the next scheduled blood check.
In the mean time Jemma feels pretty good. Whipping the hula-hoop around has been keeping her busy outdoors. She figured out how to hula-hoop in less than 10 minutes and now can't stop. Challenging her dad and brother to contests of who can hula-hoop the longest makes her laugh every time. She loves to win!
