Daddy Mike on His Own

Everyone else is gone--including Rachel for the first time in over 3 months--and it's just Kevin and I here in Memphis. Rachel, Eric, Scotty, and Jake flew out in the early afternoon. Kevin and I spent the rest of the afternoon in the Medicine Room at St. Jude waiting for (then getting) an infusion of platelets and whole blood. It's a long day (2 hrs for a blood match, 1 hour for platelet infusion, 2 1/2 hours for blood infusion) but we passed the time with some Nintendo DS and a couple of NFL football games.

Kevin is doing well, but his neutrophil count is 100 ... pretty much no immune system. So far no fever but we'll be on the lookout for that. Just hooked up the TPN. We'll finish watching a movie then go to bed.
