Woo hoo!!!  Charlotte continues to amaze us with how well she bounces back from her chemo rounds.  Today was lab day and her numbers were great…no transfusions were needed.  Her white cells and platelets are within normal limits, her hemoglobin is very close to normal (this was the one we were most worried about today) and she is no longer neutropenic.  We still have to be very careful to keep her away from illness, but this is all great news!

Charlotte was such a big girl today.  Amy informed Charlotte of the day’s agenda to “get blood taken” today.  Charlotte clarified that this meant a poke.  Within 30 minutes, she told Amy “Ready, Mommy.”  When Amy clarified what she meant, she stated “Go get poke.”  And she was agreeable to Amy putting on her “magic cream” and told Amy where to put it on her port.  She continues to make us so proud in how well she is accepting her new life.

Charlotte fell asleep on the way home from the clinic (for less than 10 minutes), but this was enough to cause her to fight her normal nap.  So we had a tired little girl tonight who went to bed the fastest we’ve seen in weeks 🙂

Now we wait for a phone call from the hospital letting us know the next step as we have no other appointments scheduled as of right now.  It’s so hard being patient 🙂
