Had our weekly appt yesterday - things are looking stable, which is good!
24hr came back at 290 - slightly up but not being considered a new problem.
Platelets are slightly up too, which is encouraging as it supports the "normal variance" theory of why they fell in the first place. As we get more measurements over the next few weeks I suppose we'll know more on that, but I think this is quite positive (at least it makes us feel better).
Rest of blood work looked good.
BP in dr office was excellent - although we actually have a hard time believing it given that our home readings are remaining rather consistent and significantly higher than office readings. Best theory that I can come up with there is that her BP may be following some sort of "high in morning, lower during day, high in evening" pattern. I don't check during the day (at work). But in any case, as long as our readings don't go up much and not other symptoms start to present themselves we won't worry.
So, we're back to watch and wait, heh. Nerve wracking perhaps, but better than the alternatives. Next scheduled appt in 8 days... Looking forward to celebrating crossing over the "Isabel line" [:)]
