Chemo 3: Cancelled.
Not good news today.
Mom's in the hospital.
Doppler shows a blood clot in her carotid.
ANC (neutrophil) is only 44, which is too low for chemo and means her immune system is just WIPED out. Her ANC pre-chemo was 8200. So for now, no chemo, and they are treating her for the blood clot. Also, they are doing a genetic test on her to see if perhaps she is predisposed to having an adverse reaction to one of the chemo drugs, which they suspect may be going on. If that's the case, they will have to alter her chemo drugs....
Continue to keep my mamasita in your prayers!!!
