Going Up!

The ANC was measurable this morning .1! WBC went up to .6. These are moves in the right direction. Gary feels better today and as the doctor said I am happy with the numbers but really pleased that you feel better.
Gary's lil sis from Denver came in this week and she spent the night with him at hospital. He slept much better. He has been sleeping as much as he can today. His body is working hard to heal itself.
We figured out the bed today. Gary is not a tall man and has a 29" inseam. His feet were hitting against the end of the bed. We kept asking how taller people can use this bed and they would try to get him to sit up higher in the bed. This morning the aid showed us the hidden button with key that moves in and out the end of the bed. Lesson learned: keep asking the questions, you will eventually get the answer that you are looking for.
No more significant findings in tests. Still wondering why fever is not going away. We have no idea when he will be released from hospital.

Hooray! So glad you got a little good news and that Gary got some much needed sleep -- probably helped now that he can stretch his legs out! Enjoy having your sister in town and hopefully Tammy you are getting caught up on a little rest as well. We'll keep praying that the good news keeps coming your way.

Every little bit helps... just have to keep patient as I know you have as they fix one thing, find another, fix that etc. Eventually, you'll be out of there and back at your digs... The ol breakfast club is praying for you - all of them.... Hope to see you soon.. Jeff Y.
