Chillaxin' at the Hospital

Exodus 33:14
"The LORD replied, 'My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.'"

It's Saturday afternoon and we're just chilling and relaxing at the hospital. The doctor who came in this morning said everything continues to look good for a Monday release. Her counts continue to go up. Her white blood count is 1.2 today, still well below normal, but almost to the level it was when the diagnosis was first made last October. It was 0.7 yesterday, so we're seeing the rate of improvement increase each day.

We met with the nurse coordinator yesterday afternoon, and she outlined the next few months for us. Tammy will go to the cancer clinic every day at first to have her levels checked and to get necessary treatments. Eventually the visits will go to every other day, three times a week and twice a week. It will be at least 100 days post-transplant (around July 10) before she can consider going back to work.

There's not much else to tell you now. These last couple of days before her release will be spent building her energy. I'm able to spend more time at the hospital because the house is ready for her return. (That way I won't mess it up.)

We'll update Monday when she returns home, but probably not tomorrow, unless there's something new to report. Have a blessed weekend.
