Yesterday was a resting and healing day for Andrea. She had a good day and continued to get more of her strength back. No dialysis yesterday and she still tolerated the tube feed for another day. Her temp was still up but hung around 100.4 all day. She sat up in the new bed (one that would convert into a chair) that they got her and had no problems.
Last night I stayed with her and she went to sleep around 10PM. Throughout the night she thought she was ready to go home (I don't blame her). She would put both legs off the side of the bed and raise her back up before I got up and told her she can't go just yet. It's great to see her getting more strength and thinking about going home. All night her temp stayed 100.4.
This morning her liver numbers were higher again (we want lower), but there is so many things that can cause this elevation. The good thing though is her platelet count was up to 134. One of the main things AML (Acute myeloid Leukemia) causes is a low platelet count and hers is almost back to the normal level. Let's keep on praying and we will get her out the hospital before we know it. Thanks so much for your concern and I will post another update soon.
