We did get the CT scan done, and then had a another CBC and Emilys WBC was 3000 (.3), hemoglobin was going up, but platelets went down again. So, she had to get another transfusion of platelets and after that she would need another dose of antibiotic and then she would be set to go home, as long as no fever. Emily went home around 7PM, she was so happy to go home.
Plans moving forward,
Friday Emily has a count check to see how her counts are.
Weekend, We are taking the girls camping to Va Beach for the weekend for some time away from hospital, time away from choas and just to enjoy to be with family and have a good time.
Monday, Emily has a Pre-op appointment at CHOP at 1015 and to talk about whats going on, what to expect, where to go and all of that. We will drive up and then drive back later that night.
We are not sure if leaving Tuesday night or Wednesday night, but...
Thursday, Emily has surgery.
I'm not looking forward to the surgery and the birthday of where she will be in the hospital, but we will celebrate a wonderful Happy Birthday when we get back. Please make sure if you know Emily, don't talk about her birthday face to face on her birthday, just because we don't want her to get upset about it. She won't know that May 30th isn't May 30th, which means any day could be May 30th based on what we tell her. We just want her to enjoy her day whenever we are able to celebrate it. Our hope is still to have the Playset up for her, she will be so excited.
Well, it is after 2AM and I have to work in the AM and then Emily's appt, so I'm exhausted, its bed time. Got a lot on my mind with processes moving forward, but I think all of that is just normal.
