Grant's ANC (ability to fight infection) is starting to rise - finally!! I think they may let him go home today, but more likely tomorrow. Grant did end up getting another bout of C-diff - the infection that caused the colitis last time that handed him in ICU and unable to eat and drink for several days. They have already started him on the oral Vancomiacin that usually cures this. I pray that it works as well this time around. In the future, they plan on putting him on the drug early after he takes Etoposide to prevent the C-diff from returning when he hits an ANC of 0. He is in such a good and playful mood though! He is busy walking around and flirting with all the nurses - as usual!

I wanted to thank my parents for helping me out with Claire this past Wednesday and Thursday. Claire had a great time going to the movies and playing at your house!

Thank you to my sister for coming up to see us in ICU and for the wonderful breakfast tacos. Where did you get those??? Grant and I solo needed them. Also, thank you for the HUGE pancakes from Buffalo Grill. We devoured them!

And I wanted to say a big thank you to my brother and sister-in-law, Mike and Ashley, for the wonderful lunch and dinner. Mike - thanks for spending some time with Grant on Saturday and for reading to him. He loved it. And Ashley thanks for spending some time with me and enjoying "happy hour" with me! Lifesaver!!!! :)

And finally, thanks to all of you who have been praying for Grant this week. I really believe in the power of prayer and that it is truly helping Grant. Thank you soooo much!

I'll keep you all posted on when we actually get out of here. I sure hope it is today. I miss my Claire and my husband so much. And if not today, I hope to get out tomorrow - just in time for David's 43rd birthday.
