Shelby had labs run today. Her white blood cell count is 3.6!!!!! "Normal" is 4.0-12.0. We used to be happy if hers was around 2. 3.6 is a BIG deal! Also, her platelets are 102,000!!!!! "Normal" for that is 130-400. Hers usually ran in the 50,000-range. Those are amazing numbers! It looks like the shunt is already working! Thank You God and Dr. Superina!
Shelby is doing quite well. Amazingly well. Last night she had a friend here for a sleep over - two weeks after major abdominal surgery. I am so thrilled at how well she is recovering! She does still tire easily. Shopping at Wal-Mart today was too much for her so we put her in a wheel chair. She is having back pain from compensating for her abdominal discomfort. Her steri-strips are curling up and coming off nicely and it looks as if that incision is healing up just perfect.
Thank you, everyone, for continuing to check-up on her and pray for her. Happy New Year!
