Home Again

Kate's counts today were better! She's technically still neutropenic (ANC of 450) but she no longer has a fever and is feeling good so they let us go. Also, her hemoglobin is 8.2 and appears to be on the rise as well. I was very grateful to see her doctor in the hospital and for him to say exactly what I wanted to hear. He told me that the drastic change in her counts can't necessarily be explained but that "it didn't mean anything bad". So good to hear!
Kate's chemo is on hold until we go to the clinic on Thursday. The counts should be high enough by then to restart the chemo and we'll be back to business as usual. This was just a little bump in the journey to a cure.

You know you're continually in our prayers, thoughts, and hearts -- that's just the way it is! Lots of love and kisses.

We were thinking on Saturday... we need to call and wish Jason a Happy B-Day. What a bummer way to spend the day. So glad Kate is feeling better. What a worry. What a year you have had. Amazing how you all just keep on trucking.

CJ, Wendy, and cousin Eli are so happy that she's back with her family. I can understand how happy it is to get out of the hospital and be home with your baby now. We're glad we could find out in time for the fast. You guys are so cool and we love you all to pieces. Talk to you soon.
