Day +11: Hair loss. It might be hard to see on Kiira’s back, but the hair loss has begun. It happened last time, so we knew it was inevitable, but it will probably take a week or two to lose it all. It will grow back, but it’s the real tale sign of what Kiira’s body is enduring.
Kiira’s white blood cell counts are still at zero. In a way, it’s a good thing because it allows Miia’s cells to grow without Kiira’s getting in the way, but tonight they’ll give Kiira Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (GCSF) to help stimulate her bone marrow to produce cells. It can cause joint pain but hopefully Kiira won’t be affected much.
We have been in Minnesota for over a month now, in the hospital for 3 weeks, and Jason and the girls have been gone a week. They are having fun being home and start school and other activities this week. Each day Kiira’s body works to build itself back up, we are another day closer to joining them at home!
