Every time we meet a doctor or a nurse, they always said, "this won't be the last visit here". I love to beat the odds, and be the first family that DOESN'T have to come back for infection. Since we have been home from the hospital, we have been really good about hand washing and using the antibacterial foam. We don't think twice about telling someone they can't come by -- even if it's my niece Emma.
When we came home from the Hospital, Johnny has slept between Mike and me. We just won't let him out of our sight. At about 2:00AM, Johnny started to throw up. I called TCH and we were told to come in, I called my mom and she came right over. We were at TCH by 3:30. They took blood, ran his numbers and came back to us and said that he was fine. No infection! We were so happy! We were also scheduled for a transfusion in about two hours at the clinic. Johnny's counts were so low on Friday that they automatically scheduled him for transfusions on the following Tuesday and Friday. Then the ER doctor looked at his numbers again and saw that his numbers were up enough that he didn't need a transfusion! Good News AGAIN! Awesome. We are home by 8:00AM, mom brought Grace over to watch Sophie and Joey, so we laid around all day long!
Mike thinks he was sick from the pound of bacon for breakfast and the pasta and butter for dinner. The doctor's think it's just the treatment catching up with him. I side with the professionals! So far, he hasn't had an severe adverse reactions to his treatments, just really tired. And that could be because of his counts more than anything.
