Day 2

After a very tired morning, Marian was good and goofy this afternoon. It was a mood probably aided by a little trip on her anti-nausea meds, but she was delightful even before that. Physical therapy, art therapy, crafting with new package from Janet, thrilled to pieces with Aunt Mindy's joke quilt (not to mention Uncle Jason's promise if she was brave), and lots of good silly cuddling.

Her counts keep falling, which is expected/deliberately planned (!), but still a little weird to see. I admit I'm unsure of the units (and the nurse couldn't enlighten me), but I think these are
thousands. I thought a little "normal CBC" google search would clear it all up, but no. Lots of different units out there. I'll ask during rounds.

WBC: 1.2
RBC: 8.1 (transfusion tomorrow)
platelets: 241

She misses her daddy something fierce.

Marian is always delightful in spite of all her trials. Hang in there and know we are praying for you. I know daddy must be missing both of you.

The word smiles because there is a mile between each s!

We love you Marian. We are wearing our Superstar t-shirts in lots of places. You and your whole family are in our prayers.
Here's a joke:
They say every dog has his day, but if he breaks his tail, he has a weak-end.

Wow - What a brave little girl and mom too. And I thought Isaac's 7,000 platelet count was low. It's all relative.
more love to you all!

Did you ever get the right interpretation of all those CBC counts? I had Isaac's results printed out, and at least it told me what the normal range was. I hope your wonderful world starts getting wonderful-er soon. Olivia's joke today is: "Why did all the bees start coughing? ...
Because there was a bug going around." She told me she made it up, but she reads so much I don't think she knows the difference sometimes :)
