Good evening. Another full day at the hospital, and still no answers.

On paper, Frank looks great.
White count is 2.5. That's low for you and me, but not for him.
Platelets are 78. Still increasing.
Hematocrit is still 10 but that's expected too.
The infection indicatior called the CRP is below 0.5. All good.

But he still has fever. Blood pressure was 88/60 and heart rate was 155. Could be better.
The nurse said she thought she heard some crackles in his lungs. And they did a cat scan today of his head and chest.

If nothing shows up tomorrow, we'll probably coming home. (As I type this, he just took his temp... NO FEVER)

The guest book is full. Someone does that for us, so we'll try to fix it soon. When you read the updates, another way to sign is to click on "comments" at the bottom of the update. I don't think there is a limit there. Thanks for keeping up with us. We love it, we read them to each other depending on who's at the computer.

Phil 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God

Peggy--just checked in on you guys again--I wish I had know about this site earlier--it's good to stay updated. I have prayed for little Jake Raborn all summer and things are a little grim for him right now--what an inspiration he is. Thanks for getting back to me--no need though--you have more precious things to do!

Hey you two,
I love our sweet and wonderful God and how he is constantly revealing himself through you both.
I pray for the Holy Spirit to flood Frank with health.
Psalm 126:2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with joyful shouting: Then they say among the nations, "The Lord has done great things for them." The Lord has done great things for us; We are glad.

May your nights be restful and your trip home be joyful...kisses to you both.

I'm a Hope member. Loved your story last weekend. Thank you for sharing it. You have a beautiful family! I enjoy seeing everyone's pix on the website and reading the updates. My favorites are "sleeping w/ donuts", "Hope Head", and you as a child- you haven't changed a bit! Praying for your continued recovery.
