January 21st, 2011-Home Again!   7 comments

Charlotte woke up happy again today and quickly got into one of her moods where she didn’t want anyone to bother her.  She didn’t like the resident checking her or listening to her.  She didn’t like the nurse assistant taking her vitals.  For the last three rounds this has meant she feels well enough to not want to be there anymore.  We knew her numbers must be still climbing.

She had 130 neutrophils and was also making some platelets.  And her monocyte count was now at 500.  So they told us in rounds that we should expect to go home today.  Charlotte was happy and we loaded up the van after I got back from work and were back in Columbus at 6:30!

It feels good to be home and we are hoping it is a nice relaxing weekend.  Charlotte has to go in Monday for a blood draw to make sure she is on the right track and won’t need a transfusion because her platelets or hemoglobin are too low but we don’t think they are too worried about that yet.

There may not be an update Saturday night as we will probably be pretty busy unpacking all of our stuff and just trying to enjoy a normal life for a little while again!

Thanks to everyone for keeping Charlotte in your prayers!
