We did not make it through the weekend at home. On Saturday morning, Naomi had petechia developing on her face and her arms and legs. After a call to the doctor, it was arranged for us to report to St. Rose for a transfusion. The bad news: we lost our Saturday. The good news: We will not be in the hospital on Malakye’s birthday on Monday.
It was a fairly uneventful day otherwise. We are praying for good health. Some of the kids have sniffles. A call to City of Hope reassured us that we are doing all we can and that Naomi keeping a mask on and us continuing scrupulous hand washing and sanitizing is all we can continue to do. We are so close to transplant and we have already been delayed…. I was afraid of this happening.
