We just got a call about Ally's blood counts. Her platelets are VERY low (her # = 14, an average person has 150). Daddy, who is home with Ally today, knew this to be true, because Ally bled through a couple band-aides after her nurse left this morning.
So.....Ally will go to the hospital tomorrow for some platelets.
Also of note, her ANC has dropped to zero. This means she has no white blood cells to fight off infection. The first time she had this chemo her white cells did not drop this low; it just shows her body is not as strong as it used to be when dealing with chemo. :(

P.S. We went two days without puke, and then, this morning, at 2:30AM, we heard Ally yell, "Mommy, Ally puke!". Grrrrrrr.

Note: Ally took some steps on her own today...willingly!
