Just a quick update this morning.  Sharon called us and gave us her numbers from yesterday.  As we already knew, her CBC results were fine, and her CD4 results were back.  Her isolation test numbers needed to be over 200, and Charlotte’s were 312-so she is officially off isolation!

We told CJ the good news-that she wouldn’t have to wear a mask anymore-she could care less.  But when we told her she could have strawberries and blueberries again, boy did she get excited!  So we will plan a grocery store run this morning to get a few of her favorites.

This is all good news.  But it is still very early with her new immune system so we still need to keep her protected from people that are sick or could be contagious.  This means if anyone in your household is sick, you are likely contagious, and please keep your distance.  Our doctors say that a person is contagious 24 hours before symptoms show.  Her risk of a major infection is still very high and a simple low grade fever will send her back to the ER for a poke.  Our plan is to start bringing her back into public shortly, but we need to do this slowly.  So if we happen to decline an invitation, please don’t take it personally.

Have a great weekend!
