Erin has an infection somewhere in her body. The blood drawn from both of her lines yesterday came back as showing infection. She had a little fever yesterday, but it didn't get higher than 101 degrees F. She had a little fever in the night, but from what I know she hasn't had anymore. We aren't sure where the infection is, it could even be the little sores on the top of her bald head. She is on the Vancomycin (antibiotic) and hopefully that will help her get better soon. She's still in really good spirits, she's not as sick as she has been in the past. Her ANC is still zero and we expect it to stay at zero for 2 weeks or more.
Tonight we decorated our house with our Halloween decorations. Halloween in my favorite holiday, I know that may sound strange, but I just love dressing up and I love the spooky decorations and things. Cecily & Caleb are really excited about Halloween and they could hardly contain themselves while we put the decorations up.
It always seems to be the hardest having Erin gone when John and I are together in our house without her. All day I've been expecting to hear her little sweet voice come around the corner. There is an empty place in my heart when she is not here. It's so lonely without her, even when there's commotion going on. I really really really want her to be home for Halloween so that she can go trick-or-treating. I just really want that. I want her to be able to have a normal childhood experience, especially one that I love so much.
