We had hoped that Caleb would get to go home yesterday, but his platelets and white blood cell counts were still too low. He got two units of blood and today he will be getting platelets. Usually, the oncologist on hospital duty will be by to see us in the mornings, but we are still waiting to hear from him today to see what the plan is. Hopefully he will say we can bring Caleb home today. Holly is not letting me come swap out with her because I pulled my back last week and that uncomfortable bed/sofa will make it worse, and she doesn’t want to waste the gas on another trip to Augusta.
Holly has been so amazing. I still don’t know how I ever got her to say yes, but thank God she did! She is such an amazing mother – sitting up at that hospital all by herself with only only visitor in four days to keep her company and not complaining. She has spent her time working on putting her teaching resources on her blog and a teacher website to sell to try and make a few extra bucks. She is a hard worker and is dedicated to her job and her family. I’m so blessed. My family is so blessed.
My mom brought Caleb his favorite meal Saturday night and he was so excited. We ran out of the house to go to the hospital so fast Friday that we did not bring but a couple of things to eat. It was nice to have some tuna casserole (lots of protein!) for a change of scenery. Thanks again, Mom!
And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God. -1 Samuel 30:6
