I have some wonderful pictures and videos to post, but we left our downloading cord at home in Logan. So, you'll have to wait 2-3 days before you get any visuals. We have the cutest video of Erin saying, "no more chemo!" Anticipation is everything!
So, we just sit here at Primary Children's and wait. Wait. Wait. And, hope and pray that Erin doesn't get sick or get an infection while we wait. We are waiting for her counts to come up. Her ANC is zero. I keep asking the nurses if it has come up yet, but we all know that it will take a few weeks for that to happen.
We should start a poll in the comments below.
What day do you think that we'll be bringing Erin home?
The doctors told us that this stay is average 21-25 days so that puts her around Dec. 8-12. Winner gets to send us to Hawaii? Fair deal?
Erin got a blood transfusion yesterday and she is due for platelets any day now. She is jolly and full of energy and we sang "jingle bells" two times today. I decorated Erin's room with red and green paper chains that we made the other day while we watched "the polar express". The chains go all the way around the room, well at least they will when I finish them. I only have just over 1 wall left to do. :)
Erin is excited to be home for Christmas. She prayed for Cecily, Caleb, Grandma, Grandpa and Santa Claus. Ha ha! She is really into Santa this year.
We are filling the hospital walls up with Christmas coloring book pages. So, whip out the crayons and markers and send us your best Christmas coloring. You can mail your coloring pages to:
Erin Hughes, Room 4412
Primary Children's Medical Center

Happy Thanksgiving Week!
I am thankful that Erin is done with her Chemo.
