Going Home!

 Ty is finally showing some improvement in his blood counts... WBC 1.2 (normal is 4-11 so not good, but we'll take any improvement, RBC 3.18, HCT 26.3 (up a little), Platelets 107 (up a little), ANC 84 which rounds up to 100.  So the doc called his oncologist to see if we could go home and she said those aren't the counts she wants to see, but we can go home if we go on IV antibiotics every 8 hours.  Probably until his ANC is over 500, but we will see.
His bum still hurts, but we can manage that just as well from home as we do here, probably better.  So excited to get home!  We will have to be super careful till his counts are up of course, but what's new right?  Yay!  As soon as the doc said that I packed everything up and got him dressed.
Now we wait for all the orders to go through, if they can get things arranged with the pharmacy and home health we will be able to go home tonight, if not we will go in the morning.  Of course we are counting on all of that to get arranged cause we don't want to be here tonight! yahooooooooo
