Happy early Thanksgiving everyone.
I know I say this a lot, but it really is truly amazing how quickly things, life, demeanor etc can change. I am surprised every time Morgan's health takes another quick twist or turn (considering how many times this is happened, I really shouldn't be by now). This time though, it is for the better. Even though she has incredibly low white cell and platelet count right now, Morgan looks GREAT! This past Friday and Saturday (and the week prior to) she was feeling horrid and didn't look much better. Now, she has the energy, her sense of humor and is feeling OK. She has even gone to school these past two days.
The only visible reminder of last weeks' health issues is her weight loss. She now weighs in at a measly 49 pounds. We are working on fixing that, but it is a slow process because her eating is not where it should be. Part of the problem is that her tongue is still hooking to the left....she says that it feels weird to eat. One only notices it when she is tired, her pronunciation of words gets a little garbled. Do we know the reason for this yet? No.
I can really do without this roller coaster...at least we seem to be on the upside! We now wait and see how low her counts go and hope she doesn't get a fever during this low period.
That is about it for now. I hope you all have a relaxing, fulfilling Thanksgiving! I'll try to post some new pictures next week.
Also: Happy, Happy Birthday to our friend Caroline, in Ohio, on her 7th Birthday tomorrow!! We are sending you all kinds of crazy and carefree vibes to add to you day of celebration!
Take care and God Bless,
