Monday Night Update

Gary is still battling a high fever, which may be due to the interferon injection he got on Sunday night or it may be from the blood infection for which he is being treated. They are trying to keep his nausea under control, but the drugs make him sleepy -- not such a bad thing. His white cell count is rising, but Dr. Jones is not concerned -- probably due to the infection. Gary did get one unit of red blood today, but they can't give him the second unit until his fever drops a bit. Hopefully the antibiotics will start to do their thing and we will be home by the weekend (or sooner?) and then back to the daily grind here at home.

Spirits are good, the kids are asleep, and Libby has another tooth (that's 5 for those of you scoring at home) The Christmas tree is still standing, and surprisingly, no one is too interested in it. I am hoping to take some Christmas pics of the kids to send out in cards, but they might turn out to be New Years holiday cards instead. My goal everyday is to make sure everyone gets fed and told "I love you" at the end of the day. My record is flawless so far.

So, I hope you all had something to eat and I love you---

Our christmas pictures and cards are not done yet, so don't fret! They can always be EAster cards!
