Abby's Journey Archive


Sorry for the late update, but we had a very busy day yesterday. I arrived at the hospital at 9 am and found the nurse preparing to disconnect Abby's IV. She was discharged at 10:00! We gave Abby the option of going home or to school since she will certainly miss her last day of school next Friday because of low neutrophil counts. She wanted to go to school and have me go with her. By the end of the day she was pretty tired, but glad she went.

We have our weekend free and she'll go to Tucson Monday for her stem cells. You can pray that she will not have a need for any red cell or platelet transfusions before Monday. The only way we can give her a transfusion here is to admit her to the hospital.

Thanks again for covering us during this part of Abby's treatment.
