We're staring at the last few drops of the IVIG dripping one by one. Just a few more minutes.... Let me take this time to describe the wonderful view outside this room. It's dark, dreary and rainy. Scanning from left to right, 9 floors up, we have: the hospital parking garage, the red EMergENCY room … Continue reading Almost…
The platelet infusion is done. Now it's on to the 3 hours of IVIG.
This morning, Ana had a scheduled blood test (due to our last hospital stay) that came back quite unfavorably with her platelet counts at 7,000. So they had her come into the hospital to get another platelet transfusion as well as a dosage of IVIG. This is the outpatient floor of the hostpital so they … Continue reading Here we are again..
We actually got home last night, around 7pm. Friday morning, Ana was told her platelet count was up to 14,000 (still abysmal) and that she'd be staying another day.

Two actually, the first caused her to … Continue reading On the baby front

Just last weekend I got the scope out and stayed up late and remembered how … Continue reading Camping
Here's a way to find out.... Today Ana and I announced to our families that we are expecting our first child, God willing, this December. We're very excited, to say the least!
I've put some of the photos I took in Chicago online.
This is the area where, over night last night, some individual(s) spent approximately $700 of my money. At a Wal-Mart, a Popeye's Chicken, and a Shell gas station. This morning I received a call from my bank, saying they wanted to validate some suspicious activity on my debit card. The gentleman mentioned they were from … Continue reading New Orleans
