Bottomed Out / Top Down
Despite having blood counts which have rapidly bottomed out (ANC zero, white count 0.2) and needing a platelet transfusion this afternoon, Christi surprisingly is still feeling very well! So much she asked to go to the Constitution Center this afternoon. (And thanks to Tim for offering us a ride downtown, it was in what turned out to be a wee bit of a convertible ride with the top down for the last block! After visiting and sharing that incredible place with her teacher, we went and saw the Liberty Bell and admired Independence Hall from both sides. As always, not wanting to get in a taxi ("I don't think they even have to have drivers' licenses," said Christi) we took the city bus back. She also needed a blood transfusion today, but we talked them into waiting until tomorrow- so that's how we'll spend the morning hours at CHOP tomorrow. With divine intervention, she may feel well enough to go to the Philadelphia Zoo when her blood transfusion is over as she has been hoping to do.
