Friends - Isaiah was at the hospital yesterday for his regular blood check (he's up from 500 last week to 800 - he apparently never "bottomed out" at zero as expected). And, it appears that his bone marrow is producing at a higher rate than expected. Thank God. While receiving an antibiotic which he gets once a month, his blood pressure dropped. So that slowed things down and he and Carmen ended up staying at the hospital for over six hours.
Carmen then went to my folks' place to be with Sienna overnight (who apparently has the flu). Things are feeling pretty out of control over here.
But then there's the little things that remind me of how well we're being taken care of - like the friend who brought over Chinese food last night... or when I rushed outside early this morning because I heard the garbage truck and realized I forgot to leave the trash can on the curb, only to discover that our neighbors had taken out our trash for us.
