Today we celebrated July 4th with a neutrophil count of >500! Hopefully it will continue to rise and those neutrophils are donor cells. And that her new immune system is strong enough to fight infections but not too strong to fight her body. Just small dreams we have. Maggie had a pretty good day – they are starting to wean her pain meds, her nausea meds, and her steroids. Still not much of an appetite, but I did get a half smile today. But not nearly as big as this smile from Laney at the Duck 4th of July parade. Missing my other munchkins a lot today on this American birthday! May Americans remember that all babies deserve comfort, safety, and love, even babies that may not all be exactly the same. Feeling blessed to be able to cuddle my youngest baby tonight.
