Kate was in such a good mood yesterday! She was a doll at clinic, got to see a few BMT friends, took two good naps, and was just so happy!
It felt almost like the "old days" before she was admitted! She even slept in her crib from 8pm-7:15am!
In honor of a "normal" day, we had photo shoot - much like we would do prior to the hospital! Kate hammed it up and it felt wonderful to pull my camera out and be a little bit creative. I even edited pictures last night - that's big since I am so far behind on August and September pictures!
So, here is my happy girl!!
She decided to turn her nose up at something!
Back to smiles!
Love her expression here! Confession - I totally missed focus on this shot but Kate's expression was to cute to disregard the picture all together. So, I hid a lot of my mistakes by converting the picture to black and white. By no means perfect but still pretty cute!
Peace out, mom! I'm done with pictures!
On the recovery front, today is day +38! Kate is doing pretty good - still very reliant on platelet transfusions and red blood transfusions. I'm hoping we will start to see her platelets rebound soon! Her appointment yesterday went well. We had to see a wound care specialist though. Kate's skin is SO sensitive and the dressings from her central line are causing pretty bad skin break down. One spot was not looking good at all so we met with wound care and have a new plan for her dressings. Hopefully her skin will start to heal and we can avoid infection as that would mean a trip back to the hospital.
Also, I found out yesterday that Kate's blood type will change to her donor's blood type. It makes perfect sense but I'd just never thought about it. It is apparently a gradual change but, over time, my B+ baby will become A+. I am fascinated by the little things I keep learning about the bone marrow transplant process!
I hope everyone has a great weekend. It is currently raining which is such a God send. Texas is having one of the worst droughts ever right now and we need all the rain we can get!
