Getting on the "Road" of DI
That's kind of how I feel to day. I'd rather take a country drive, a country drive on Sunday even to really slow things down .in a tractor. But nay, on to Denver we go, roadmap in hand, off to start DI.
So, yes the roadmap that you see in the image above is not your typical roadmap, but for us it is becoming more typical. Every phase of this treatment has its own "roadmap" to help us know what's coming up. This roadmap is a complete protocol of what Abby will be getting, and when, for all of the Delayed Intensification time frame, 59 days in all. As you can see from the top all patients must qualify for this phase with a certain ANC (immunity) count of 750 and a certain level of platelets. Yesterday Abby finally qualified since her ANC was 1600 but last week she was only at 200, that's why she couldn't start.
Well we've got to get going. down to Denver to get all of day 1's Meds. I can feel the car accelerating already:-).
