Back home and all is well

Just a quick note to say that Abby is fine. She stopped throwing up within an hour of being on IV fluids and then slept most of the rest of the night, from 2:30am on. Tiffany and I also got a bit of shut eye but we are still pretty tired. They released Abby from the hospital at about 11am, she napped in the car, napped at home and went to bed early. I think we'll be doing the same.

This running to the hospital thing is probably just going to be a potential 'normal' part of our life. If she gets a fever of 101.5 and has a ANC of under 500 (the infection fighting part of the white count) then we belt her in the van and make haste down to Pres./St. Lukes. Even though she didn't spike a fever last night, they sent us down because the throwing up could have been a pre-cursor to a fever from an infection.

Crazy new life style huh? I hope this isn't going to be too common. With some kids it is and others it's not. We're praying that she is one of the 'not'. :)

To bed we go.
