She's home!

This morning Kayla's ANC went up to 100, so she was free to go.
She was able to go to "school" before Jimmy arrived. She was very happy about that, she misses school and can't wait to start home school.
The Dr. also said that she doesn't have to have the blood thinner anymore. I am relieved b/c now I don't have to give her shots at home.
We hadn't been home for about 5 minutes and she hurt herself. She turned her head and smacked it into the corner of the counter.
It was purple before I even had ice in the baggie.
She fell right back into her routine. She is bossing James around, yelling at him, hogging toys.
Since her ANC is so low I am going to keep her inside for a few days.
Better to be safe than sorry.
She goes back to the Dr. on Monday to get chemo, so I am really hoping that all of her counts go up.
Oh and we never got an answer as to why she had a mini stroke. They gave me a few reasons that "could" have caused it. It frustrates and scares me at the same time.
Jimmy's radiation consultation is tomorrow, he will find out the day that he starts.

Here are a few pictures from the hospital:

She was very happy with all the Ritz crackers her nurse brought her.

These are all of the electrodes that were glued to her head. They were looking at her brain function. She had to keep her eyes closed b/c they could tell when she blinked. Also we had to be quiet b/c she needed as little stimulation as possible.

James got to visit! He came on Friday which is Movie Day!!! They have a little "theatre" down stairs. They have popcorn, juice and lollipops. We got to watch "Space Buddies." Kayla mothered him the whole time. She must have gotten up about 5 times to get him more popcorn.
