When the phone message was left yesterday saying something like maybe you'll get her platelets tomorrow, maybe you won't, Shayne knew who to call. And with the wonderful Lezle on the phone at the hospital this morning making all of the arrangements, Shayne's mind was put to ease. Whew! Thankfully, Christi didn't have any problems with the transfusion and we're very grateful for the sweetheart who drove all the way to Toledo and back to get them for her; this allowed her to attend a full day of school. There is no greater joy in Christi's life!
As you can see from the photo, this lucky little lady had a GREAT day there!! She is so loved!! Thank you sweet friends! After school, Shayne took her to the hospital for a life saving platelet transfusion. (Thank you blood donors everywhere!)
I shall get her counts checked again before school on Friday morning. I will have our suitcases in my van in case we need to head to the airport after school. I have my eye on some late afternoon flights, but have yet to book anything- despite the fact I told Dr. Maris and Nurse Pat that we would return on Friday. (They want us there Wednesday or Thursday, oh, that's today!) I'm still hopeful she's going to sneak through this without a fever; she just feels so well yet! Please pray that she stays fever free and that our family can be together at home all weekend. THANK YOU!
Today I received some "galloping good news" from the Party Planners who have been "trotting" along with the preparations. If Christi's body continues to cooperate, this little cowgirl's birthday party is going to go off without a "hitch"!! THANK YOU, Grines!!
Here's another picture snapped last night of Christi and her friends warming up their recorders. (THANKS, Jenny!)
