Quick Update

Forester was sad and tired most of the day yesterday. He really wants to come home. He was so convinced that he would be coming home today he asked me if they could go ahead and de-access his port before he fell asleep last night. Of course the answer was no. His ANC this morning is 114 and we are thankful for the improvement. It looks to me that we will have a couple more days in the hospital before we reach 500. Poor Forester. Also, he is currently receiving a platelet transfusion. This is the first time his platelet count has been low enough to need one. Normal platelet range is 150-400. They usually don't do a transfusion unless it's under 10. I'm not at the hospital at the moment and I'm unsure of his platelet count but it still stinks. No one wants their child to be sick in any way and to know that his blood counts are so just hurts my heart. I just have to keep reminding myself that this is a season and our goal is complete healing.

Please pray that Forester will be in good spirits today and for all of his counts to go back up. Thank you! I'm off to church to get my praise on...

Oh Whitney - reading these recent posts are so much deja-vue - please call or FB me if there is ANYTHING I can do.

Brian also said to tell you that he would be more than happy to chat with you about this - although it's MUCH different being your child - we have been through this very same roller coaster.

We love and cherish your family dearly and are praying constantly for that sweet little guy and the ENTIRE Bradburn and extended family.

Love Janell
