The surgery went great, Brinley did just fine with the anesthesia. Hooray!  So the central line is gone!  She finally got her pretzel at 5:00.  That is so long for a 2 year old to fast!!  It took her a while to perk up, of course, but she is feeling fine now.  She won't heal as fast because of her low blood counts, but hopefully it won't give her too much pain.  Next on the list is a PICC line.  She needs to show two clear blood cultures first, so she will possibly get it on Tuesday.  They will sedate her to put that in too.  


Her ANC is not budging.  It is still at 100, so she is still at a very high risk for infection.  She is well covered, still getting the momma antibiotic (vancomiacin sp?).  They hope to see her ANC rise before we go home.  She is on complete chemo hold until her counts recover.  Because she crashed like this they will probably reduce her chemo to 50% when she starts back up again.  Thanks for checking in, she is doing great!
