Kristen had her blood checked on Thursday to see if her white count was high enough to stop the anti-biotics. Her ANC was only 300 so the anti-biotics will continue through the weekend.
We had our bear project this past Thursday, thank you so much to all those who participated and helped. We needed 24 bears and we were able to make 27. We will deliver the bears to the hospital the first of the week and I will definately be posting pictures. Many of my kind neighbors have also donated stuffed animal to the hospital and we will be delivering them also. Thank You!
Kristen continues to receive cards, letters and gifts. Everytime I open a card and read Kristen a message my eyes fill with tears as I am so touched by the kindness in the world. Thank You so very much to all of you. Kristen received a very large package from sweet Carly. She loved opening the many gifts. All of you and your children are such a source of strength, even though I have not met most of you my life and Kristen's are richer for knowing you. Your love and generosity abound!
When Kristen woke up this past Monday she was all smiles when she looked around and seen that I was packing our stuff.
Kristen passed out these cute ornaments to all the nurses before we left the hospital. They are from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and all profit is donated to research.
