One Big Adventure
An opportunity to log in some of the thoughts and activities of our homeschooling family of eight. We love books and good food and aspire to a Christ-centered, multi-generational, agrarian life.

Maybe tomorrow

Thanks so much for the encouraging notes, thoughts and prayers.

It looks like James got his last fever last night around 8 p.m. and they are trying to send us home tomorrow. Some things need to be in order--like being able to take what we need home to give James his antibiotic through his central line--and he can't have any more fevers before we leave.

The initial blood cultures grew out "staph epi". It is a bacteria normally found on the skin that can be harmful when it gets in the blood. They will keep an eye out on James to be sure it doesn't rear it's ugly little head when his counts drop during upcoming chemo.

James is back to his normally silly, saucy self today and that is always encouraging.

As always, we hope for the best, but realize that we're not out of here until we see the hospital in the rear view mirror!
