Coming Home Today!

Not that Children's isn't a very nice hospital, but we're always glad to be released, rather than waiting another day. 

They've moved today's chemo down to 3:30, and that usually lasts an hour or so, and said we should be released right afterwards.  (The past week's chemo would start at 5:30.)

We did homeworks, activity booklets, took a little walk to an outside area, and briefly discussed Milky Way and Andromeda's eventual collision. (He brought it up, he saw it in TV apparently.) It was beautiful outside, so we snapped a few pics. Here is one:

He'll be back in Omaha on Friday for a blood infusion. They'll give him donated blood to boost his red blood counts. That should be an easy in and out procedure. 

And of course, tonight (or maybe tomorrow) we resume the Neupogen shots at home to boost the white counts. 

I'm grateful for:
- spending time outside with him and talking about galaxies,
- he's drinking really well,
- getting released today,
- blood donors, but that goes without saying.


  1. Glad Jack is back home! There is just something to say about sleeping in one's own bed!

  2. Yay! Glad you are home! Can't wait to Skype with you tomorrow! We've missed you this week!

  3. Looking good, Jack - you look so strong & brave - glad you get to go home tonight!
