Going home!

Well, I finally reached 300 neutrophils, and even though they would prefer 500, they are letting me go home today! Right now, Brett is trying to figure out a way to come up and get me. He is very busy with the kids' baseball today with photo day, ball toss fundraiser and a scrimmage for Jack. If he can't find me a ride, he'll be up here around 3:00.

Thank you for the consistent thoughts and prayers. Keep them up because I'm not out of the "neutropenic" woods yet until I reach 500 and a white blood cell count of 4.0, so I still need to be isolated, but at least it will be easier at home.

Thanks again!

Seriously, this is the best news I've heard in a while! I'd come give you a ride home, but I'd take longer to get there than Brett.

Woohoo! You're going to sleep in your own bed tonight!

Yeah! Great news. Even the 3pm bus will do, right?! I'm glad to hear you're home and relaxing. Hearing Jack outside with friends must be music to your ears. Welcome home.

Fantastic News! Glad to hear that you'll be able to recuperate at home. Still dancing for last few neutrophils to show up. Keep on KCA.

Letting you go home? Girl they are making you go home! They are tired of your whining.

Hee hee hee.

J/K! I saw your announcement on Tweet and grinned big. Keep it up, you're running an amazing race. :)
