Jeremy left yesterday morning to head back to KC for work. It was tough for him to leave and he called multiple times while driving to check in on her. His trip is about 8 hrs and it was a long one. Cy was so excited to see him when he got back though and of course Jeremy let him sleep in the house with him. All of our Kiddos are going to be so spoiled!
Avery's counts went up today! We are so excited they finally left the bottom and are at 300 today. Still too low to not be at risk of course, but at least they are moving up now! Her C Diff and Blood Infection are doing fine. The antibiotics will continue until Thursday and then hopefully we'll be cleared for discharge. Nana and GJ came down from MN yesterday and will be here all week to help out. Since she is in the hospital until Thursday this will be a big help -- hard to shower when she can't come with me! Nana arrived just in time as I have no clean clothes left and Avery ran out of clean pj's....YAY! Today they have us scheduled for our PT, OT and Speech therapy so we'll have a very busy day. She has lost a little weight...down to 18 lbs, but she is eating much better now. They told us she could eat as many calories as we could get into her. So she's been eating the heck out of grilled cheese, sweet potatoes with brown sugar & butter, pound cake, fruit loops, pop tarts, and loaded mashed potatoes. I am totally jealous.
The IA Benefit was on Saturday in Neola and they had an amazing turnout! So many people came out to support Avery and it was tremendous. Jeremy's Aunts, Uncles and cousins were quite the party throwers we hear! Thank you so much to everyone. It brought tears to our eyes to see the pictures and hear the stories from everyone. Please feel free to send us more pictures and stories either through the blog comments or through email. (firstname.lastname@example.org) We are so blessed to be part of such a great community. We love you all so much!
