Maren gets vincrsitine through her port.
Her labs revealed that her ANC (absolute neutrophil count) is only 600. Under 1,000 means there is a high risk of infection, and under 500 will mean an automatic inpatient stay if she gets a fever. She needs to have an ANC of 1000 to get her methotrexate during this cycle, so that was a no go. Not to worry, that's pretty standard in this cycle, and it's not something she has to make-up later.
We make her appointment for a lumbar puncture next week, and we punch out of the parking garage at 10:57. Not bad.
Our post-clinic tradition. Always to-go unless she happens to have a particularly high ANC.
