Home again

We were sent home, thank goodness. It just feels better to be home and all together, and not have the extra monkey on our backs of going back and forth to the hospital.

On Friday, The Boy does have to go back to the center for counts and, likely, another transfusion. Hopefully, he will respond more favorably this time to the blood. I don't even know (and maybe someone could tell me) if getting a fever as a result of a blood transfusion is normal. It doesn't seem too strange to me; they do give Tylenol and Benadryl before they give you blood.

We just switched off sitting with The Boy and trying to get him to sleep in his bed. It seems like for awhile it will just take patience, if we want him to spend any time in there.

About the fever after transfusion, my friend who is in remission for the 3rd time from leukemia (she is a fighter just like your little fella) experienced the fever after each transfusion too, so it seems like just an annoying side effect. Keep strong. Your family is always in my thoughts.
