Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

Another positive day at the doctors. Alivia's WBC count came down to 121.1! that is only 10 thousand more than a normal person...yea. We have to go back tomorrow for a blood transfusion because her RBC's are low. They Hydroxurea can start to supress the bone marrow after a while and that is what seems to be happening. so we will go for our transfusion (which takes 3 hours!) and then head out for the weekend. I am so excited to go away. Wonder if I should pack our hazmat suits for the wedding? Probably a lot of people will want to touch and hug us. We'll just have to lysol people as they approach us.

...that tomorrow goes smoothly. the transfusion takes 3 hours and anyoen that has a 1 yr old knows keeping a 1 yr old content in a small room for 3 hours is a huge task.
...that nothing else goes wrong and we actually get to go away for a weekend!

In the next week or so we will be going to a cardiologist because Alivia's heart has a "gallop" (instead of beating thump-thump (2 chambers) hers has a 3rd noise) could be just because of the need for red blood cells but our doctor wants to be safe. WE are all for being safe!

Gotta go take advantage of the nice evening...its not humid for the first time in a long long time. Time to hit the park!

VERY GOOD! Enjoy your time away. Get refreshed! Lysol does come in a variety of scents, maybe one is appropriate for special occasions. Katherine
