June 12th Decent results

Dominique’s blood counts are low, but high enough so she doesn’t need a transfusion.  Her ANC (ability to fight infection) is pretty much zero so we gotto try and be cautious.  Next appointment in the clinic is next wednesday June 19th to have her blood tested.  No word yet on when Dom’s CT scan will take place.

Dr. Bond is trying to find out the cost of Dominique’s chemo drugs for us.  I know the numbers will be quite astounding.  The other day the media reported the government is considering not covering chemotherapy costs as part of the medical services plan.  I do know from talking to our doctors that this is like the cost of a mortgage for most people.

Time spent in the hospital on that day: 1.5 hrs
