Today has been full of wonderful visits! Early this afternoon we had Carolyn, Tara & Stuart Glenny visit for a few hours. Carolyn & Tara helped Shelby make a doll. Then, Grammie & her sisters came. We worked on a Thanksgiving craft and enjoyed hugging eachother. Now, her BFF, Kayla, who moved to Atlanta this summer, is here. She came back to Rockford to visit her grandparents for Thanksgiving and was able to come up to the hospital tonight. This is GREAT medicine for my Shelby.
Please say a prayer for Scott. What a heavy load he is carrying! Clinicals, classes, working nights...its taking a toll on him.
Night went fine or should I say morning. Shelby finally fell asleep at 3:30 a.m. with her hand in a bag of goldfish crackers! Today's labs are about the same; slightly improved (?), I think. Her ANC is down a bit which makes her neutropenic, but it is closer to her "normal." No sign of the fever - yea! Now we just bide our time and wait on the blood cultures. Of course, Shelby thinks its time to live it up! She has plans already to decorate her hospital room and is waiting (impatiently) on Child Life (like she's the only patient). I love her so much! Keep on swimmin, swimmin, swimmin, my little Dory!
