Well, it's just me & Briley sitting in the hospital room. All is quite. Alicia rode back to Seymour with Mom, Dad, & Bryson so that she can attend the prayer service for Gloria.
Briley's counts continue to drop. She finished getting a platelet transfusion a while ago and is now getting a blood transfusion. Her ANC also dropped to 280. The trauma & oncology doctors do not seemed to be worried about the count drops, so we'll try our best not to let it bug us as much. Like the trauma doc told us, our mindset is in the cancer world, but it is actually the trauma causing these drops since Briley had such serious injuries. Her fever remains constant also.
She is not receiving pain meds while she is getting the blood transfusion. The transfusion will take 3 hours to run, so if she can make it through the duration without pain meds, that would be a big step forward! So far, so good. I haven't heard her complain about pain while she's been laying in bed. Only time she has complained was when we moved her to the wheel chair & back.
She has ate more today and drank lots of liquid. Her urine isn't as dark as it has previously been.
Tomorrow will be a big day as we have numerous events happening. We will have to order a wheel chair. We will also have to order a specialized car seat. We'll get our vehicle situation figured out eventually, but first thing first.
I was very humbled earlier today. A group of Fort Worth/Irving firemen that works part time in the ER came up and payed dad & myself a visit and brought the kids toys. It came to show that no matter if your volunteer or paid firefighters, we all put our pants on the same way and we all belong to a brother hood that understands each other. The talk with them was uplifting and I'm glad dad was there with me to be a part in the talk.
We didn't know what we were going to do with Bryson this coming week. I didn't catch all of the story, but thank you to whomever is giving mom the opportunity to take the week off so that she can keep Bryson and be there for us! I've caught myself almost telling Alicia that her mom could keep him. So giving mom this opportunity will be a large help!
This blog has been read about 4,300 times since the accident, so I'll apologize for my writing skills, spelling, grammar, and anything else that Alicia will correct me on! As far as Briley, we are looking forward to the happenings of tomorrow. For Alicia and her family, I pray that they may somehow find comfort.
Did I mention Troy Aikman & Garth Brooks will be here at the hospital on Tuesday?
Thank you for your continued support and prayers!
