John and Erin are on their way home right now! They have to first stop at our Home Health Company and pick up all of our supplies and then they'll be on their way to Logan where they'll meet up with our Home Health Nurse. Then will get packed up and come up to Bear Lake to be with the rest of us! I can hardly wait!
Erin's ANC is up to 600 today and her sore is just looking better each day. She is still on Oxycodone and Tylenol for the pain. They are also keeping her on the Vancomycin and Meropenem antibiotics for the next 2 weeks while she is home.
I was so excited to get an opportunity to donate blood on Wednesday night at the Stake Blood Drive done by the Red Cross. I don't have the same blood type that Erin has, but it was fun thinking about how I was helping someone else in need. The best part was that I donated in my fastest time ever - 7 minutes! Cecily & Caleb came along with me and they were so well behaved and sat in their chairs coloring for almost an hour while they waited for me.
I just think it is so wonderful that Cecily & Caleb have had each other while we've gone through this. It was quite a shock to us to have them 14 months apart, but it has really has become a blessing. They are built in friends and they get along so well.
Well, I can't wait to see my Little Air Bear and watch her run out in the sunshine! It is so hard to contain my excitement! I am also one of the most impatient people ever, but I am so glad to know that today is finally the day! And, the best part is that we only have to take her back for ONE MORE ROUND of chemotherapy after this! YES!
