As of January 12, after 8 bags of RBC and 6 bags of platelets transfused, her repeat CBC levels are as follows:

Hemoglobin: 10.5

* decreased from earlier CBC result of 11.2

* Normal range is 10-12

WBC: 11.3

* Increased from earlier CBC result of 83

* Normal range is 4.5-11

Platelets: 38

* Increased from earlier CBC result of 23

* Normal range is 150-450

Though blood count may not still be within acceptable levels, we are still positive that it continues to progress for the better.

Joy is scheduled to receive 6 more packs of Platelet concentrate. Hopefully it yields better results this time.

Last night, Joy's blood test results show a good decrease of Pracalcitonin (Blood chemical indicator of Sepsis/bacterial infection). According to her doctor, this is a good sign that her pneumonia is starting to subside.

She will still need her antibiotics for at least another week, to make sure all infections will be eradicated and will not recur.

Once she is cleared, Chemotherapy can finally start.

Bone Marrow results came in today.

Doctor just told us that what was earlier suspected as Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in Blast Crisis, is confirmed to be Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) instead, which is the more aggressive type of blood cancer.
