It seems like we may be here for a while longer. Noah's neutrophil count was almost nothing so we may be here through the end of the week. I guess I should stop getting my hopes up that we may leave a certain day, because honestly no one knows. We just pray that his daily labs begin to look better and better. There is no "magic number" he needs to reach, but he just needs to set a trend climbing up instead of down. He is still confined to his room, and is doing really well considering that he's been in the same space for 4 days. John is here tonight and will stay through tomorrow, so I'm going to get out and find a new toy to keep him entertained. (We usually get him a new toy or 2 with each stay!) He is also eating better and drinking MUCH better, so he doesn't need fluids constantly and only stays connected to the iv for his antibiotics. This has allowed him to move about the room without me fussing at him to watch his iv, so he's enjoyed today much more than yesterday.
If anything changes I will post again tomorrow; otherwise, we're just waiting!
