We are Waiting to Go Home!

The waiting game is in effect.

She's had a very good 24 hours or so. She has pooped THREE TIMES in the last 24 hours. Fever has stayed down and her appetite seems to be returning to somewhat normal. Her counts are still fairly low but stable. We are just waiting for the go-ahead from Dr. Khan before we can go home this afternoon. Hooray.

Unfortunately, the rash on Charlotte's "bum-bum" is still there but it doesn't look any worse (and may actually be a little better). It seems to bother her most when she poops.

We are getting so used to the hospital routine I think we are getting it down to a science. By this round of hospital stays, I think we've finally figured out what things we need to bring, how to get them here, and how to get them home rather efficiently. I've already taken my first "load" of stuff (dirty laundry, extra snacks, stuff we probably won't need for the next few hours) down to the car in one load. The rest can go with Charlotte in the stroller when we get the A-ok to leave.

We did get out and about this morning with one ride in the wagon and then a walk around the nurses station. And two trips to the playroom to work on puzzles and play with the farm. She's her usual adorable self with the nurses and hospital staff.

So that's all I have to say for now. Hope everyone enjoys their Sunday.
