Yesterday Piper had a good day. She laughed a lot! ...mostly at her Daddy and sister! She had a quiet day. No treatments or procedures; just lots of medicines and vital sign checks. One of our little friends was admitted on Friday for a night of chemo so we got to visit with her yesterday before she went home.
Today, however, will be a little busier. I was awoken at 5 am. I was told that Piper needs another blood transfusion. Her counts are down. They have to do it first thing this morning because she also has dialysis scheduled today. Yuck! We will be busy and stuck in her room the whole day. Please pray that she will rest through her treatments today. The transfusion will take about 3 hours, and dialysis takes about 4 hours total.
If you've ever thought about donating blood, please consider Piper and all of her friends. It makes a huge difference. They each require many transfusions throughout their treatment.
