Another update from Heather as Bren has been too poorly to update her blog.
Bren remains in Hospital. In addition to her other infections she developed pneumonia – and had to cope with an very irritant dry cough for some days. With the help of the antibiotics and nebulisers this is now improving.
The treatment plan has changed. Bren was seen by the Doctors this morning and was told that there has been progression of her disease. Unfortunately the DLI infusion is currently not in the plan. Full dose Azacitidine chemotherapy is due to be given this week. She continues to require regular platelets, blood transfusions and fluids. Today a Picc line was put in – this will enable Bren to have all her blood tests and infusions through this line which will give her veins a rest. Her poor hands and arms are so bruised after needing such regular blood tests and infusions so although it is another line l think Bren and the nurses will be relieved!
