Tuesday Night Update

I really don't have a whole lot to update on.  I guess the big news of the day is Briley was moved from the trauma floor to the oncology floor.  The trauma team said that she would have been discharged today, but since her ANC is very low at 40 and she spiked a fever last night, her oncology docs wanted her on their floor.  That is fine with us!   Briley has been feeling pretty good all day.  There are times that she needs her pain meds, especially after transitions from the bed to the wheelchair or potty.  It's looking like it will be a 2 person job when she needs to potty.  One to pick her up & one to wipe.  I don't know how we are going to do it when Alicia is back at work or if I'm at work.  I guess we'll figure it out eventually.  
Deacon Jim & Alicia's dad, Glenn, came for a visit today.  It was good seeing both of them.  
We really don't know when she will be discharged.  She could tomorrow if she doesn't run any fever, but may have to stay at the Ronald McDonald House until her ANC comes up.  It's all speculation, but we'll just have to wait and see.  
It's nice being on the oncology floor.  We've been wanting to see the new wing, but not in this way.  It's really nice.  I'll have to go exploring tomorrow.  
No, we did not get to meet Garth Brooks & Troy Aikman today!
Once again, we appreciate everyone's support during this trying time for our family.  We'll pray for a peaceful & restful night without pain!
