Ella's fever FINALLY BROKE around 6am this morning. It stayed gone all day without more Tylenol or Ibuprofen. Her Aunt Carrie brought her bagels from Panera, but we still can't get her to eat much. She has been drinking some protein shakes, and a small amount of cantaloupe and grapes. Her ANC was up to 700 which is pretty good, but they tested her antibodies and they are at 250. The ideal is 500. So they are giving her IVIG in her IV to boost that. The side effects of this drug are low blood pressure, vomiting, diarrhea, and headaches. They will have to monitor her every hour tonight to make sure her blood pressure doesn't go too low. There is also a viral pneumonia in her lungs. She will be here until she starts eating and we get the diarrhea under control. She is also on chemo hold still until the doctors feel her counts and body are ready to start up again.
