Day #4

8:00am: still at the hospital. Still at a count of 2. Bad headache from second dose of IVIG. Will try to sleep a lot and wait for platelets to return. Had to cancel my Nashville trip.

Noon: Doctors are very concerned...if no improvement by tomorrow, more invasive options will be on the table. I feel sad and scared. And I am throwing up from the IVIG.

1:30: Got a reiki/healing touch treatment here at the hospital. Favorite thing ever at Mayo Clinic. There is a team of volunteers who will do a healing touch treatment for any patient who requests one.

3:00. I am up to 15,000! Shower and cup of sherbet. Not out of the woods but major progress!

  1. Em....you've been on my mind all day. Hope you feel our prayers and love. Hopefully, the platelets will begin to increase each minute today and tomorrow. God's Blessings for improvement soon.
