Going Home !!!!

The nurse came in this morning and said, "I have some good news."  My counts had risen to .53.  Crystal had slept at the hospital with me last night.  We were psyched.  You see, Thursday we were at .22, Friday we dropped to .19 and Saturday it also stayed at .19.  We were bummed to say the least!  Then this morning to have .53, we just couldn't believe it.

When we got home, we were greeted with balloons and this sign that Rhonda put up:




So I am now sitting on my own couch watching the Pats waiting for the kids to get home.  I still need to wear my mask because I still do not have much of an immune system.  It is nice to be home after 5 weeks in the hospital on soooo many levels!!

Thank you to everyone for the cards, phone calls, gifts, meals, child watching, visits, lawn mowing, massages, gift cards, trash runs, positive thoughts and wishes.

We were so excited to come home from soccer to see the balloons and sign! We could only imagine what a feeling it was for you to finally be home. I hope you were able to drink a Shipyard! Have a sweet nights sleep in your own bed!
