  • Platelets

    A nurse came in a bit ago and said that they plan on giving Ana three bags of platelets – one before surgery, one during, and one afterwards. We’re still waiting for the one before to be delivered…

  • Checked in

    Well we’re up in the room now and she just received an IV, which was an ordeal.   What’s a little blood on the floor between friends?

  • T minus 5:45:00

    Good morning everyone! Here we are – just a few hours to go.  Last night we rented a couple Wii games, Jay and Katherine came over, and we were able to make the evening go much faster than the day went. We’re packing up the last couple things now in preparation of heading in to […]

  • Just a few more days

    Well we just have a few more days left before the baby is born. Slowly but surely we’re getting the last few things done around the house in preparation.  We’ll be going to the hospital at 8am on Wednesday (Dec 12th) so Ana can get full of platelets and she’s scheduled for csection at noon.

We’ll be getting Ana to the hospital around 8am so that they can get an infusion (or more if needed) into her so her platelet count is increased […]

  • Another Sonogram

    Here are a couple photos from the sonogram this morning: regular, 4D (not sure why it’s “4D” instead of “3D”). The baby is measuring 4lbs 10oz, with 7.5 weeks remaining.  Wooo.

  • Hematologist

    Today we met with the hematologist Ana has been seeing since her hospital visit. She had a blood test run and it came back at 27,000. “Not good, but OK” according to the doctor. We continued talking with him and asked explicitly about what would happen if she needs to give birth and her platelets […]

  • Blood Test

    Ana has a blood test scheduled for 8am tomorrow morning.  We’ll see if the last visit did any good.  Stay tuned for more information.
