Platelets still pretty low. Kind of disappointed that they hadn't changed. But not low enough to warrant meds. Phew. Next step prednisone...last step spleen out. I'm nowhere close of either of those yet.
Busy day. Weary weary...just navigating my way around the hospital is hectic. Heading in next week for an infusion...it should help my bones for about a year. That will save taking super strong drugs once a week (which I haven't actually been taking)...
I'd lost my forms, so after seeing the Dr today I went straight to the chemist to order the meds & phoned ambulatory care STRAIGHT AWAY before I had a chance to lose these forms...so there's no turning back now...

The Drama Queen has been fairly patient with me...but she herself has exams so I have been trying to help her study & not snap at her when she asks me to spell something for the 50th time & I lose my train of thought...I just realised she had swimming this afternoon at school & I didn't even ask her how it went. *Forehead slap* - bad mother, bad mother...
Superboy is on edge too because he's so tired. I haven't been getting them into bed as early as I should. Tonight they had cheese on toast because it was nearly time for bed & I realised that pasta AGAIN probably would have caused much complaint! This afternoon he severely reprimanded me because I had taken all his toy puppies.
Me: Yes, I thought I would put them into the wash because they needed a bath
SB: Mum, you should have TOLD me you were going to do that!!!
Me: Well you were at school!
SB: Well, you should have told me BEFORE school!
Sing along with that song "I'm walkin' on sunshine, woh" but change the words to "I'm walkin' on eggshells" & you'll have this house.
D recovering. They are exploring GVH in his lungs now. Lots more medicine back onto our draw in the bedroom again...but as I said to a friend this afternoon - we have a house, we have each other, D is still here. We might be in debt & still be paying off Christmas laybuys, & we might just have chicken sandwiches for Christmas lunch but there is lots of love here!
I've washed up, nearly finished packing lunches...it's after 11pm. I might crawl into bed....zzzzzzzzzzzz
