Well this time we have a reason for the fever. Kevin has a staph infection. I guess it can be common in this place and he is on heavy duty antibiotics. The surprising thing was his counts. He was at zero ANC yesterday. We were expecting them to come up slowly but he is up to 700 as of this morning and that means his immune system is coming back fighting. If his counts continue to improve tomorrow we maybe able to to blow this joint and actually get to see some fireworks tomorrow. That is what we need prayers for is a nice, fun evening of bring together and some fireworks. It is Jake's first 4th of July. I am not so sure he will appreciate it, but maybe he will get to surprise us. He tends to like loud noises. Scotty hates loud noises and covers his ears anytime even a toilet flushes.
Kevin is looking pretty good and playing the wii with everyone, including his doctor. Dr. Hale started to beat him yesterday and Kevin smartly said, " humm, I think mom should play again." (I typically lose to him). But Dr. Hale gave me an advantage I kept, and won for the first and probably last time ever.
I think we have all enjoyed being able to be a family this week. It is really tough on the boys with all of the shuffling around. It is impossible to get Jake on any type of schedule. Mike does really well with getting him to nap, but I think Jake is secretly daddy's little guy.
Thank you for all of the prayers for Kevin. God must have heard them, we certainly werent' expecting his counts to jump up that quick.
Hope you all get to enjoy your 4th of July too!
God Bless you and your family,
