Back on the other side....

As soon as I left yesterday they moved Cody back to the other side of the floor. She said he had a little melt down so they ended up giving him some Morphine and he started to feel a little better. I'm awaiting word on his blood work today. His blood started showing signs of recovery yesterday. In the past he usually turns around quick once he starts. I don't anticipate him coming home before Monday at the earliest. I think they will plan on scans in two weeks. Then we will find out what is next.

Last night I got home and Justin wanted to spend the night at my sister-in-laws. It was just Daniela and I so even though I was bushed we went to the movies. It was a nice father daughter night. We went to see Alvin and the chipmunks. It was pretty hard to keep my eyes open but she really liked it... :D

Thanks again for the prayers and kind words. I'll post again later after I find out what his blood work turns out to be.


Well I'm back at the hospital doing my shift. When I got here Diane and Cody were outside. She had him in a wagon and they were down by the fish pond. We took him up by the soccer field and the observatory. It was chilly but he really enjoyed getting out. We kept him outside for about an hour or so.

We are in a room that he has never been in before. It's much larger than the others and it is probably the quietest. It has a private shower and it's about 3 feet wider than the other rooms. You know I'll be getting out for a run tomorrow.

Cody's ANC number is 12 today. It will probably double tomorrow and needs to be around 500 to go home. Usually once it starts going up it goes crazy. He could be at 500 in 3 or 4 days.

Have a great evening all.......
