Update from Rebecca / Mommy (of Delilah)

Lyllah's fevers ran a rollercoaster all night- up & down.  She also was shaking uncontrollably but yelling at me that she was not when I would ask about it.  She didn't go to sleep until 4:30 or 5 am and then woke up for the day at 8.  Michael and i are both exhausted and Delilah just keeps going like the Energizer bunny... I never did like that rabbit... (singing like Elmer Fudd to the tune of Valkyrie) "Kill tha wabbit! Kill tha wabbit! Kill tha wabbit!..."  Ok so here are the numbers:  The ANC is down to 20 from 90.  The hemoglobin is also down to 8.1 from 10.  Delilah's las recorded fever was at 3 am.  Our goals:  ANC above 200.  Fever free for 24 hours.  The blood cultures were taken yesterday at 11 am and take 48 hours for complete results.  We need those results back negative to leave too.  Also, if her hemoglobin drops below 8 she will require blood.  See more at
