0.02 neutrophils!

Cath is in hospital tonight with her daddy. She has some sort of infection and we will hopefully find out more soon. She has 0.02 neutrophils which is the lowest immune system she has had. Please pray that it is easily treatable with antibiotics and that she will soon be well.

Low neutrophils

Catherine has been doing well recently but is currently going through a period of low immune system which means she is getting various aches and pains. She has a tummy upset and gets odd pains in her ears that come and go. When we saw the ENT specialist, she said that Catherine didn't have any hearing problems apart from a very very slight loss of hearing on the lower levels. We were surprised to learn that this was not from the chemo but from the recurring ear infections she has had since her birth. But the ENT specialist gave us some spray to use in her ears if she starts to get another ear infection, so we have that on hand if necessary.

We are still on track to finish chemo in October and Catherine's consultant says she is doing extremely well. Praise God!
