December 14th, 2010-Home home, here we come.   13 comments

Today Charlotte woke up with 90 neutrophils and she was sassy again but eating well.  Dr Diamond gave us the opportunity to go home and get some much needed time away from the hospital.  We didn’t argue too much.  Amy and Grandma E spent most of the day packing up our room so we were ready to leave shortly after Charlotte’s nap.  We still need to return Friday for a blood draw, and at least once again next week.  We will hopefully find out more details and timing for the transplant later this week or early the next.  But Dr Diamond thinks that we will probably have at least the next few weeks to have at home if we can keep Charlotte healthy.  She is happy to be home and once we get unpacked, we will be too.  We will miss the rest of the families and staff at AFCH and hope they all have a good holiday season.
