Emily here again today :)
Bit more information on Holly's latest hiccup: one of the immunosupressant drugs she was on caused a sudden drop in her white blood cell count (WBC count). They stopped the drug immediately and in order to bring it back up asap they are starting her on a specific treatment to help.
Having a very low WBC count like Holly does right now can be dangerous as it means the body is very vulnerable to infection as it has no defences, which is why she's in isolation and why the docs are working nice and fast to build some resistance back up again.
Understandably Holly is feeling pretty down about this as just as the kidney starts working, there is a new setback. However hopefully this new drug will kickstart her WBC count again and help Holly rebuild some defences asap.
Thanks for your continued wishes and support with her campaign!
