It has been another couple of good days for Charlotte here.  She still seems to feel well for the most part.  She is still eating pretty nicely (but her daily weigh-ins show her as losing a little bit each day), and she is plenty active.  She has now had 0 neutrophils for over a week and you would never know it.  But today she did have a higher hemoglobin count than yesterday.  She also had some monocytes for the first time today, which can be a precursor to growing those much desired neutrophils…

We have spent a great deal of time over the last couple of days talking to a family going through transplant right now.  We hope and pray for the best for them.  They also have a wonderful family and have already lived through so much more than we have.  We pray that their little girl makes a fantastic recovery.

Molly has been just great these last few days.  She is sleeping better during the night.  We are even calling last night her first “sleep through”.  Amy put her down at midnight and then woke up at 6 am worried because she hadn’t heard from Molly all night.  So Amy may have actually woken her up this morning just making sure she was Ok-she may have slept longer than that!
