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.

Day +52

We only get counts done every 3 days now and yesterday when they did her counts her WBC's had shot way up. It went from 6.9 on the 25th to 16.7 on the 27th to 37 yesterday!!! 37 is really high. It could have been from the increased steriods but to be sure they took blood cultures. Steriods make getting a fever (the first sign of a bacterial infection) really hard. So we wouldn't know that she had anything without the higher WBC count and blood cultures. Today the cultures came back positive. We are not sure exactly what bacteria it is yet but please pray that the new antibiotics make it go away quickly. Pray that she starts to feel better very soon.

She is very puffy from the steriods and she is starting to grow Cyclosporin (anti-rejection med) hair. Cyclosporin makes dark hair grow all over the place.You can get it on your back, eyebrows, chin, chest, earlobes and bottom. So far the most noticable is her eyebrows are darker and bigger. It will fall out as soon as she stops taking the cylcosporin but it is just another yucky side affect.
