Charli’s temp has been great through the night, low actually. Since we have been here (at 10:00 yesterday morning) she has only drank 1 ½ oz, but she did eat ½ a jar of turkey and gravey! I think the turkey smelled like cat food! YUMMM.
Charli is getting two antibiotics to combat 99% of what could possibly come back from the culture (which we hope comes back negative). I know how some of you feel about giving antibiotics when not necessarily needed…and I don’t want to hear it! The benefit of using antibiotics far out ways the risk in these types of situations.
Later this afternoon Charli will receive her first blood transfusion. We have to wait for the antibiotics to finish in about an hour, and wait for the blood bank to send the product. The transfusion itself will last about two hours I believe. This transfusion is for red blood cells only, not platelets or plasma.
She didn’t sleep well last night, but she did have a nice nap this morning, and is trying to nap again…so we hope for a good day!
Hello to all the new readers that have visited in the past day or two, from the neuroblastoma (NB) site and thank you for your support. I realize and respect that you have all walked in our shoes yourself.
THIS JUST IN….GREAT NEWS. Once the transfusion is complete we will be able to come home. WHOOOP-WHOOOP!!
