Maura has the weekend free! Hurray! We are off transfusion watch for the time being and don't have to return to the hospital until Monday. Platelets were at 57 today--an 18 point jump from yesterday--still quite low, but above the threshold for daily monitoring. The plan to delay treatment remains unchanged, despite the good platelet news, so Maura will have an extra week for her bone marrow to get back up to speed and do what it's supposed to do.
