(Day +23) This week

Hi fans,

After a week of 0.1 neutrophils they went to 0.2 then 0.5 on Tuesday and on Wednesday. I was hoping they would be 0.5 or more again so I could come out of fully protective isolation but today they were 0.4😞 Hopefully they will go up again tomorrow but you have to have 3 consecutive days until I can come out of fully protective isolation.

This is one of my nurses called Vicky


And I’ve been unconnected from my lines because I’m taking all the meds orally I was having down my line. I don’t need my feed through my NG tube as I’m eating and drinking lots. I hope I can have my NG tube out soon.

  11. Hi Grace,
    This is one of your fans writing…
    Wow! You are doing so well! But of course because you’re so brilliant. Your nurse, Vicky, looks pretty awesome too. How’s your mum doing? Has she figured out how to read a book on that tablet yet?! And have you been dazzling her with more of your amazing magic tricks? The news here is that Rhiannon has been painting some walls and window frames this week and I’ve been at work. She also put together a bed for the spare room which she assured me was a perfect fit… after lots of back and forth, ‘to you to me’ it’s now sitting on top of the skirting boards – I think maybe her tape measure is broken! She says she’s going to shave a bit off the legs… what could possibly go wrong with that? Anyway, enough of this jibber jabber. It is so fantastic to hear how well you are doing. We think about you guys all of the time. Keep up the excellent work, brave lady. Lots of love, Loo xxx

  12. Great news Grace. Praying you get up to 0.5 really fast. Glad you’re eating again 🥘 Love the pink top and you big smile. Lots of love and a big hug 🤗. Jxxx

  18. Hi Grace,
    Really good news this week! Your Mum called me at school so she could tell Liv. We were so happy. Great that you can move about a bit more too. School got closed early today because of the snow. Lots of the pupils in Liv’s year were happy because they didn’t have to do an exam.
    Hope you have a lovely weekend and that you keep getting better.
    Love from Ms Barlow xxx
