Waiting And Waiting At CHOP

Well, Naya has been at CHOP since Thursday. Her counts were very low as a result of the chemo about 2 weeks ago, which then exposed her to infection. With her counts so low and an infection, the protocol is to stay in the hospital and take antibiotics until her counts rise. We almost expected this to happen as it happened the last two rounds. She is in good spirits but pretty bored. We have watched a LOT of TV and are finishing some school work in preparation for 5th grade.

Her low counts gave her a big bruise from a minor shot. She wanted me to take a picture but I wanted to spare her followers.

We are hoping counts begin to go up soon so she can see her classmates and start school with everyone. One day at a time.
