For instance, last Friday we got the idea to attempt a family Road Trip to Starkville, MS. We had read in the paper that State was playing Ole Miss so we made some phone calls to see if it was something we could pull off. We are so thankful to Peggy’s cousin Scott, because without his graciousness, none of it would have been possible. It was also great to see family we don't see very often.
Treatment wise, I’ve been pretty low maintenance. We went in for labs on Monday and to our surprise (and in answer to prayer) my platelets were sitting at 35. (fresh from a different machine). The rest of my lab values were in line as well, so I got to go home without any additional treatment. Man it sure is good to be “healthy”. It takes some of the stress out of our busy schedule. I am still getting the IV antibiotics at home which Peggy can administer. I'm also so thankful that is being done without being an impatient, or needing a home health nurse.
We are praying Mr. Blue Bird will find Peggy's daddy as fast as he found me. God is good, and he is now out of ICU, and on a step down unit, but still needs your prayers. The pneumonia is getting better, but all the medicine has put stress on the kidneys. Please keep he and Sandy in your prayers.
