Day 13: Gorge-fest

I'm guessing the title gave it away.
Yup, the doc gave the green light late this morning for soft solids.
I ordered the boy scrambled eggs and a biscuit with gravy.
Let's just say he macked, he munched, he gobbled.
He almost ate all of it.
And when I stopped to have him take a rest, he grabbed a handful of eggs.
He had cried most of the morning and wow, what a difference food makes.
That's the good news.
The bad news is his counts are way, way down.
He is now considered "neutropenic"... which means his ability to fight off infections is nil.
His doctor has said he will be here at least another week (sigh) and his visitors are now extremely limited.
The fun continues.

Continued prayers, for you, sweet girl ... and, of course, for Kean. I know that it is not so much help when you are stuck in there watching him in pain and suffering, but, please remember that you are so loved by so many people ... and even though we can't be there, we care so very much! <3
