Anyways, we had the same nurse as last time in ER and she was very helpful. One of our favorite family doctors was the ER doc, (there are 4 providers at the family clinic where we go and we love every one of them!)

Today, Shelbie's platelets are up to 30 which is a nice improvement. Staying on top of the pain here at home now and so far so good. I am beat, in so many ways. I haven't had but 4-5 hours of sleep since Friday night. I am trying to get on top of laundry, packing the Christmas presents and clean the house before things get crazy around here. We are still planning to leave this week to go home but I have arranged for some friends to stay at the house while we are gone so I need to get things shaped up for them. Hopefully, Shelbie will steadily improve, the boys will stay healthy and I can shake this crazy virus that has settled in.
