Lyric is supposed to be having a couple of procedures today. She is due to start her second induction or second round of chemo but will not due to her Nutra Fill numbers still being to low. Within your blood cells are found white blood cells. The white blood cells are broke down to various kinds of white cells, each having a different job. The Nutra Fills are white cells that kill bacteria. They actually are the cells that form puss. Essentially, when your Nutra Fills are low you have a week immune system or none at all. We are probably looking at starting the second induction around day 35. Lyric will however, have a spinal tap and a bone marrow aspiration today. The marrow aspiration is to see what her marrow looks like after her first round of chemo and a couple weeks of recovery. We have been told that if she looks like the marrow has reacted well to the first round than she will start the second on day 35. If not than they will start her second round immediately weather her Nutra Fills are where they need to be or not. What this has in store for her I am not sure. At that point they will also be looking more seriously at a bone marrow transplant. Her ptt numbers were a little low this morning also which makes her blood clot to slowly. So they have started her on a plasma transfusion to help that number be where it needs to be. Once that looks good we will go to the OR for the procedure.
