Hooooray! We are home! Labs came back negative for infection so we were discharged at 6:30pm. I guess the fever must have been some sort of reaction to anesthesia. I'm going to get a list of the meds that were given and try to figure out what was different this time. Brady's blood counts are coming back up, not normal yet, but no longer neutropenic. The results of HVA VMA were not in yet, so we will probably have to wait until Monday (remember those levels will tell us if the amount of cancer cells are decreasing). We have an appointment Monday with the oncologist that was supposed to be to go over results of the scans. Since we already did that in the hospital, I'm going to call Monday morning to see if we still need to come in. Our next goal is to get this tumor out, which means we need to get Sloan to return our calls and emails. That is an area for prayer!
I wanted to share a picture with you of our three monkeys (the 4th monkey was sleeping soundly in her swing). It warmed mommy's heart to see her four "babies" back where they all belong! Also I included a picture of Brady saying his prayers:)
