Alice received platelets early this morning to prepare her for surgery. She was NPO (fasting), starting at midnight until the biopsy at 1:30 p.m. She did well enough.
Tyler said Alice's bone marrow biopsy went very well, it was quick and when she woke she was happy to eat. I was so glad that they were able to get what they needed from her hip.
In the past some doctors were not able to retrieve anything from her hips so they proceeded to her knee. They finally retrieved what they needed, but her knee was sore and in pain for months.
We anxiously wait for the results on Tuesday.
Matthew said today that he had a dream that Alice was home and sleeping in her bed. He jumped out of his bed in the night to see her and she wasn't there. We all miss her around here.
Because it's flu and respiratory season children under 14 are not allowed on patient floors, so the kids have not seen Alice at all except through Face Time/Skype...thank goodness for that.
Maybe Alice can come home next week.
