The last couple of days, it appears that Ella's counts have bottomed out which means that basically she has NO immune system right now. The good news is that the only way to go now....is UP!! She actually had a few "good cells" start to show back up in her blood count today which means that she has started the upward trend....hopefully! (I guess sometimes they can go up and bit and then back down before definitely going upward). For those of you who are unfortunate enough to understand what these numbers mean, yesterday her ANC was O and today her ANC was 10 with a WBC of 2.0 and neutrophil count of 0.5
Ella continues to feel pretty good. Her energy level is decent and she spends a fair amount of time each day cruising around on the floor. But I think her favorite pastime continues to be watching her DVDs.......favorites being Baby Signing Times, Dora and Jana Alayra
Please keep those pictures of your kiddos coming.....Ella's wall is starting to fill up with some VERY adorable faces......Ella gets a kick looking at the pictures (everyone is "ba-ba"...baby) but I think I love looking at them even more!! If you still need our address, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now for some pics from today.......
Ella sporting some Baby Legs that Jax sent
and they ALL get to sleep with her...she is either hugging
and kissing them OR throwing them over the side of
her crib....notice she is making the sign for birdie.
she could make mommy fetch it for the 10th time.
Notice the poster in the background, big sister Abbey
took it to school and had a bunch of people sign it
