This morning we were pleased to learn that Scarlett’s white blood counts jumped significantly. The nurse said it was a Christmas Miracle! I believe it! What took 24 days in the last round only took a few days this round! We are all very happy. Scarlett will remain in the hospital until her belly has healed. I really don’t have an estimate on when that will be but we certainly hope it’s sooner rather than later. The doctors are going to let her try drinking clear liquids tomorrow morning. She is looking forward to a breakfast of chicken broth, apple juice and a lemon icee – otherwise known as the breakfast of champions.
Scarlett is feeling much better though! She is enjoying watching a few classic movies and has already decided that she will be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz for Halloween 2014! I think there just might have been a connection for her with the ruby red slippers and realizing there is No Place Like Home.
As always, thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers and acts of kindness.
I will keep you posted on Scarlett’s progress.
