Dr. Hawthorne and Dr. Watts came by earlier this morning with the lab results; Noah's white count, platelet count, red blood cell count, and Absolute Neutrophil Count all dropped today, with ANC going from 36 yesterday to zero this morning (that's the one they want at around 500). So, he's going to have a blood and platelet transfusion sometime today (hopefully before lunch but our nurse said you never know how long it will take to get the blood). Good news - since Noah looks really good and he has energy, etc. we MIGHT get to go home tonight or tomorrow morning! They will monitor him during and after the transfusion and see how things go. John went back to work today but will come back tonight and hopefully get to bring us home. :)
I'm really glad we may get to come home, but I'm also nervous...since his counts are so low I'm going to probably go into overtime trying to keep the house free of germs! Please keep praying for Noah's health, for a successful transfusion, and for us all to have strength for today. God bless and I'll keep posting when I know more.
