OK now they’re just messing with me – I can go home today!
So as far as I can understand what happened, the consultant (Le Grand Fromage) overruled the Registrar and has said that I can go home today after all! The blood counts are still a little low today (neutrophils 0.6 and platelets 34), but the plan is to give me another infusion of platelets and another of the bone marrow boosting GCSF injections to boost the counts a bit. Apparently they are then confident enough that I’ll be up in, and stay in, the safe region.
Should be having the platelets in and my central line taken out this afternoon, and then I’m good to go! Apologies for the yes, no, yes roll-out of announcements – I’m just delighted to be going home today after all!
