It’s a good day. Had a follow up ultrasound to check on the blood clots in my arm and hand and they are no longer there… yay! Also had blood work done today, normal Monday thing, and just found out I am no longer neutropenic. My platelets are up, and the other things are still low, but almost normal. They probably will be by Thursday. I’m happy I get to be a normal person for a few days. No masks, no worrying about germs and dirt and fungus,etc. I think we will go out, do something. Mom and I are talking about going down to her house tomorrow. She hasn’t been there in a couple of weeks, so it would be nice for her… and nice for me to go down there too. I haven’t been to Mom and Don’s place since before all this started. Would love to see all they’ve done this summer. It’s been a lot.
Since my numbers are pretty good, and will probably be even better on Thursday, it looks like I will get my first of my last two pushes on Thursday, outpatient. My last push will be on Friday. Yes it’s my birthday, but then that gives me two things to celebrate… turning 45 and the fact that I just had my last push. Yay!!!
In baby news… he’s a tad fussy. Not much of a sleeper yet, which is keeping the kids and Karen on their toes. It will get better though… it’s the usual no sleep for the new parents and grandparent thing going on. I feel for them. They all look and sound tired, but he’s adorable. So beautiful. They will all get through this with flying colors and soon everyone will be getting more sleep. I have confidence in them. Plus, I’m sending all the love I can their way… that’s gotta help… right?
Ok… well… I’m going to finish watching the US Open men’s final, which I recorded on the dvr while we were in at the clinic. No one tell me who won. I’m excited to finish watching this match!
