Earlier this week, Anna had routine labs done. Everything looked great - except her ANC level. She had this happen back at the end of November, too. So, unfortunately, she needs three days of Neupogen. She hates that it is administered subcutaneously, and we hate that even with our insurance, each injection costs around $60. Hopefully three doses will be enough to stimulate neutrophil growth.
Until her ANC level goes back up, we need to keep her home from school, which she doesn't mind at all. Going out to a restaurant is out too, though, so our plans for tomorrow night are postponed (it's my birthday tomorrow, and we had plans to meet family for dinner). Cabin fever will likely set in soon.
