We're still here....

Today is day #11 in the hospital. The only thing that is keeping us here is her ANC. (ANC = immune system, so basically she doesn't have one right now) It is still 0. The reason that it is so important for it to go up is b/c if we take her home right now with 0 ANC she will definitely get sick and have to come back. No ifs, ands or buts about it. They *think* that it will be up by Thursday but that is just a guess.
They still don't know why she had a mini stroke. Which is frustrating and scary at the same time. And she is still on blood thinners. I am giving her the injections now. They want me to be able to do it at home. I have already given her shots at home so it is no biggie. It just upsets me b/c it stings when it goes in and makes her arm sore for a little while.
Her appetite is down but I know that it is b/c she hates the hospital food, and I don't blame her one bit. It's o k food but nothing compares to food from home.
Jimmy has his radiation consultation on Thursday, and we will find out when he starts. We are kind of freaking out b/c we don't know how we are going to pay for gas. It is going to be 3-4 weeks, everyday. ugh.
That's all the info I have for now. Not too much has changed.

Thanks again to all of you that have prayed for us. It means a lot to our family. I will update again if there is a change. Hopefully my next post will be about us being at home! **fingers crossed**
