4:20 PM (Randall posting): The visit from the Home Health care nurse went well. Our regular nurse is away at camp this week, so another came to visit, but Sophie was just as cheerful with her as she is with our regular nurse (Elisabeth went to her room, such a shy one!). Sophie's bloodwork came back good, everything is holding pretty steady. Her platelets haven't even dropped as much as we expected them to, given the bruises she's been getting. Her ANC (indicator of her immune system strength) is 1.4, well above the "worry zone" for being exposed to infection. Susan will take Sophie to the clinic tomorrow, and I'll have clinic duty on Wednesday (when Elisabeth will ride along as well--she's never been to the clinic before).
