We're still in Birmingham. Noah just got more platelets and is now playing with his new Thomas the Train set & helicopter (John had an emotional breakdown in the hobby shop). He's feeling a little better today. Yesterday afternoon he spiked a fever again and is now getting an additional type of antibiotic. His ANC is still zero, so we are waiting and praying for that to start going up. Blood was drawn yesterday for cultures, but I haven't heard anything about them - I'm assuming no news means no bacterial infection.
We had some friends visit on Tuesday, and Noah also got to visit with a sweet dog from the "Hand in Paw" program. Yesterday was rough; Noah didn't feel well and I was really tired, so neither one of us had much patience with the other! Thankfully John was able to come down yesterday afternoon to break up the monotony. It seems like the days drag when he is not with us, and then when he is here they fly by...I really miss my husband.
I'm not sure how long this stay will be, but please keep praying for Noah's neutrophils to grow, and for us to stay positive and full of joy and life while we're confined to this small, not very interesting space. :)
