Elena is achey and tired. She wants to go home. She has battled nausea most of the day.
Everything Elena has gone through has really taken its toll on her and her body. Due to needing platelets followed by Lasix the last three nights, Elena has had three sleepless nights. Her white count is continuing to come in. She is up to .64 - praise God! The doctors say that this engraftment process can be the cause of the achiness and pain. It could also be because an infection is brewing. There are no signs of that at this time- Elena has been fever free for four days now - more big praises! Please pray that Elena continues to stay fever free. Another thing adding to Elena's continued fatigue is that her red blood counts are extremely low. They have been hanging out right above the need for a transfusion mark for four days now. Please pray her body starts to produce more and more red blood cells and platelets.
Elena did perk up around 6:00 tonight and enjoyed doing some sand art with Erica, one of the fabulous child life specialists here at Egleston.
|We are ending our night with a fav nurse, Becca!|
Our first day here was spent with Becca.
We have enjoyed several days and nights with her since!
We count her among our many blessings!
Thank you for continuing to pray for Elena's complete healing!
