Hannah's fever has officially broke!

It has not been over 101* since around 7:35 last night. We are very thankful that Hannah's temperature is staying down. She is NOT doing very well and the fever was just adding extra pain and aggravation.

Hannah was also put on a new antibiotic yesterday and her TPN and lipids were increased to 16 hours.

Mouth sores are evil!

Hannah woke up yesterday morning with mouth sores covering her entire mouth (lips, tongue, cheeks, and gums). We were told that the sores can go down her entire digestive system! She was in a lot of pain from the sores and was put on a Morphine pump. Thus far the Morphine is controlling her pain pretty good.

Hannah's ANC was 8.5 yesterday and her platelets were 36. Her platelets were low enough to get a infusion, except she was not at the critical level yet and the Red Cross was out of platelets. This morning her ANC has increased to 23 and her platelets are down to 13 (normal range 150-400), now she is critical and her mouth sores are bleeding really bad since platelets are to help the blood clot. We have been informed that the Red Cross were on there way to NWA to get some platelets for Hannah.

***It is 11:00 and the platelets just arrived! I pray that the bleeding stops!***

Even though Hannah was not feeling well yesterday she did get a couple of interesting visitors. A little dogie name Cheeko came and visited Hannah. She enjoyed petting the dog and holding his leash. She also had a couple musicians come by. One played the chello and the other the bass. Hannah loves music and loved listening to them. She wanted to hold the bow and play too!

Pray, Pray, Pray, for these mouth sores to go away!
