We’re getting sprung this morning (or afternoon).
See that dark red vial of “stuff”? It’s packed red blood cells, and I’m convinced, a bit of pixie dust.
Aaron is doing sooooo much better. In fact, if I hadn’t had to work last night, we probably would have just gone home. But by the time we made it through the 24 hours post-transfusion, there wasn’t time to get us home before I was working. So he stayed the night one more time, but this time on the floor.
So we’re outa here. He’ll be at home for at least the next few days and then after that, we’ll see. He’s continued having afternoon fevers and those may stick around for the next few weeks. In a normal year (what’s that anyway?) it’s not cool to send a kid to school with any kind of fever. And this year? Yeah, just not happening.
But that’s okay. We’ll be at home where we can see family again, I won’t have a commute, and I can fall into bed just after signing off work. A real bed, you know, not the chair that folds down that has been masquarading as a bed for the past 2+ weeks. It’s good, it’s very good.
