2:30 PM: I just signed the discharge papers! We're packing up and going home. (This time I waited to pack until after I had signed the papers!). Her ANC is up to .4 (from .2), and most of her other counts are on the upswing. Taking the IV out (and removing all the dressing and tape that was holding it in place) was probably worse than doing blood draws. It took two of us to hold her down and another to pull it out. Goodness gracious! Anyhow, I don't want to delay packing any longer, so I'm going to end this, shut down the computer and get moving. Thanks to everyone for your positive thoughts and prayers.
