Noah is sleeping soundly and I pray he does all night! Last night was a little rough; he was woken up by a blood pressure cuff around midnight and let the entire floor know he wasn't happy. Tonight I believe the order is to do vitals only when awake! He had a good day - white cell counts are gradually climbing, but the ANC is still too low for us to safely leave...I'm ready to get home but not at the jeopardy of my child's health. I'm not very medically minded, so I'm still learning all of these terms and drugs and side effects, etc. It's so hard to realize that even though Noah looks healthy, plays hard, has no fever...he is still sick and his body can't handle being exposed to anything that could possibly cause infection. So, we'll stay here as long as it takes. And apparently this will more than likely be the norm for the next five months or so.
Thank you for your continued prayers, and I'll let you know what's going on tomorrow!
