No April Fools!

No April Fools joke: Andrea is at home tonight, getting to sleep in her and J's own bed! The new doctor "on rounds" saw Andrea when she was out this morning doing her exercise walking and was impressed by her spunk even before he got to her room to do her assessment. He looked at her blood draw numbers, nurses' reports and by what she was telling him that she felt better today than yesterday, he let her go home.
Now, she has 100 days of returning to MDA each day for fluids, meds and assessment to really get well again..... but at least she can go home each night to sleep peacefully.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and an extra thank you for those who gave platelets because Andrea is still receiving those platelets and will be assessed each day to see if she needs more. You ALL are terrific!

Great news! I bet she is so happy to be home (and I bet J. is too!). I'll be giving platelets this week. Keep me posted on Andrea's platelets because I'll keeping on giving as needed. Now that Andrea is feeling a little better, I'll give you a call and drop by when she's in the outpatient clinic one day. I'm so happy to hear she has been discharged. Her attitude and perseverence is truly a testimony for all of us...so is your family.

It was so good to talk to you. I called the donation center and you only have to wait 2 days before giving again, can you believe that? Thus, I made an appt. for 10 a.m. on 4/12 so you will have some in case you need them while I am gone. Let me know should you need them earlier b/c I can come any time.

Love ya,

Jen Harp

What good news!!! I really like this new doctor. Andrea, you are just amazing, and I'm so glad to hear what progress you have made just in the last few days. I pray that it continues, and the next 100days go by really fast.

Love, Caroly
