Once again we are making progress in the treatment of Jemma's Leukemia, but are still not through associated medical issues. About two weeks ago she fell off her scooter and got a minor scrape on her elbow. Unfortunately, the minor wound is still not healed. Her low leukocytes are the most likely reason. They have been in the 1000-1600 range which gives her some immune system protection, but is still quite low. In an attempt to make it heal quicker, we now have a special honey gel and honey band-aids to use.
I'm amazed by how much more often he has gotten sick than the rest of us. It's probably because he is a nine year old boy who likes to touch everything. Thankfully he is feeling better now and the rest of are still fever free.
Next Monday after Jemma has her blood checked we should have a date to have her catheter removed and we are all looking forward to it.
