Well the news was told us yesterday that we are going to be here till they release us on Monday. When the doctors told us, Devree started crying. The doctors don't want to clean out her right ear to see what is going on in there and have given lots of antibiotics and she still complains of it hurting so badly. They don't want to chance scratching her ear to give her a place for more infection. She still has a sore throat too. So they said that they could give her more morphine but she kept crying. The doctor said "Please don't cry because we really do have soft hearts." Later Devree said "You know Mom, I think I started crying because they are giving me hormones." She has been acting differently these last 2 days. They started her on Provera so she won't have menstrual cycles because they don't want her to loose any blood. Her ANC counts are up to 500 from 0. So you get a good idea of what your ANC counts are, normal healthy people are around 2700!
I woke up today feeling a little depressed. Yes I bought me a blow up mattress and it is better than the bed, but I just feel bad that Noble has come at this time. I am really grateful that he is helping us both through this hospital stay, but I wanted to do some fun things with him and Devree when he was here. Our lives are so "funless" right now and I know that we are only at the beginning of this phase. I can't hardly face that fact. And no they didn't give me any Provera! I miss going to church. I am going to take Noble to the Germantown ward on Sunday.
Tomorrow is a new day. Enjoy the weekend! Have a great one! Koe and Summer thanks for keeping me updated on your blogs. We have lots of smiles when we see your darling little kids and all the activities you do.
