Today was another good day at the hospital.  Charlotte was still happy, active, hungry and fever-free!  She has truly amazed us with the way she has responded this round.  She had a great time when Grandma E showed up to play this afternoon, but she (ok all of us) will miss Grandma W as she is heading back home tomorrow am.  Thank you Grandma for all of your help this last week.  You have helped more than you can imagine.

Molly was pretty good today too, but she is still wanting to sleep in a little more upright position, so laying her down flat in her crib usually doesn’t result in very good rest.  We are considering adjusting the mattress or having her sleep in the bouncy chair, swing, or car seat…but she does seem to be better than before for the most part so we are happy with that.

We have our bone marrow transplant meeting tomorrow so we are very anxious to hear what he has to say.  We will keep you posted!

  1. Extra prayers and thoughts will be with you all on Thursday. Charlotte is AMAZING with the way she is making her way through this horrible diagnosis and treatment, as are her parents! Your story is truly inspiring, and seeing Charlotte ‘s progress really renews one’s faith. As always you’re in our prayers and thoughts. Glad to hear Molly’s getting better, too.

  2. Thanks for keeping us up to date! I miss you when you don’t post 🙂 Good luck with your appt today!

  3. So glad to hear that Charlotte is happy. I think maybe just being home has helped her assure her that she will go home again eventually. Blessings on your future decisions.

  4. So happy to hear all the good news! We just returned from church and Pastor Schultz had a long prayer and told the congregation about Charlotte’s illness. He said he that he will be saying prayers in our church, St. Lukes, until the time that Charlotte is cured! Lots of tears came hearing him talk about her. I hope and pray that today’s meeting was all that we are praying for. A big thank you to Stacy and the girls for the fabulous job they did at Culvers. Seeing the enthusiasim that we saw in those girls was just heartwarming. Good night and sleep tight baby girls.

  5. We used to put the vibrating chair in the crib and put Sophie in that to sleep. She couldn’t sleep lying down flat for a month or two due to underdeveloped stomach muscles. They have those foam wedges that might work too. We tried one but Sophie was a restless sleeper and just rolled off of it.

    Good luck with the transplant meeting, we’ll keep our fingers crossed for more good news!
