Hopefully My Last Hospital Update

The doctors woke me up this morning with brief, unexpected, and amazingly hopeful news. That’s right, I may be able to go home today.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed, but here’s what I know for now.

  1. My white blood count is back to normal.
  2. I’ve been without a fever for well over 24 hours.
  3. The pain has subsided significantly.

 

I still haven’t eaten anything other than ice and water, so they want to see how my stomach handles the transition before giving the final OK. It’s not a done deal yet, but things are definitely looking up! If all goes well I may be out of here sometime this evening. Your continued prayers are sure appreciated!

Last night Lacey came to visit me after school. We talked for a bit and then snuggled as we watched Amelie in the hospital bed together. For a moment the busyness of the hospital seemed to slow down, no one was coming in to poke me with another needle, my IV machine wasn’t beeping, and I wasn’t in pain. In that moment, for the first time, I forgot I was in the hospital. It was exactly what I needed, to feel normal if only for a moment.

Hopefully my next post will be from home. Thanks for the tremendous outpouring of love and support over the last five days! It means more than you know…
