The clock, it ticks

Again, timing is everything.

The lab rejected the sample for the CBC. Too much. Neither the nurse nor I had ever heard of such a thing. But that's what they said. The Boy was getting IV antibiotics, and we had to wait until they were done.

Now, we are still waiting for the blood, and it will be over four hours from when they give his premeds for blood until we get to leave.

I also wonder...yesterday's hemoglobin was 7.7 and today's 6.9. They saw that it was low and based on when his chemo was, they should have expected it to keep dropping. Anything under 8 usually means transfusion. WHY not order it yesterday?

We just got a new "neighbor." Another screamer. Not sure if I mentioned the child throwing fits down the hall. Usually not for much reason either. In this case, closing the door will do no good, because we share a wall.

If we aren't out by 7, I will start pitching fits that put these to shame. Not really. But boy do I want to.
