A Very Good Friday

We’re home!

It’s the end of the first phase of this long road toward recovery, and we couldn’t be happier to be out of the hospital. There are a lot of reasons to be cautious, and some big hurdles ahead, but we have to appreciate each step forward as best we can.

Zoe is looking pretty good. She’s lost another 2 inches in girth, though she still has her steroid cheeks, and her vitals are all “ok”. Her blood counts are a little low, as expected, but not enough to be a concern at the moment with the medications she’s on supporting her. Her vitals for the record on her day of discharge:

  • WBC: 1.2
  • RBC: 3.07
  • Hemo: 9.2
  • Platelets: 93k
  • Temp 99
  • BP: 100/43 (a particularly good reading, some still come back over 110/60)

That’s it for now, more once we’re settled in at home.

  1. Michelle, Evan, That’s WONDERFUL news. I hope you guys can soon get some well deserved rest. All of the vitals sound a lot better and hopefully that trend will continue. Maybe the worst is behind us. We know you will be back and forth some, but home is always a better enviorment. We are very glad that you are all home and know you all are in our daily prayers. Love to all, Grandmother, Granddad, and John

    This blog is amazing and you are gifted writer, Evan! The process must be so helpful to you and I hope others dealing with similar challenges will find it.

    Michelle, the ways you describe being with your girls are so touching and I have no doubt of the curative power of your attachment. I look forward to a good time for Michele and me to come visit.
