Olivia's antics

Olivia was doing great, but then decided she didn't want to do that anymore. Her sats, blood pressure, and heart rate dropped again. The consensus is that she is having a strong reaction to one of the sedatives given for the bone marrow biopsy. She is just now coming out of it and starting to wake up and move around a bit. It was a nasty couple of hours. She is getting a transfusion as we speak and that always makes her feel better.
Dr. Smith called from St. Jude and said so far everything looks good from the bone marrow stand point. There is no cancer and her bone marrow is responding well. So, most likely it's all related to an infection of some sort. They'll have a full report sometime next week.
So, I'm loving this internet access at the hospital. You all are going to get so tired of me bloggin' every 10 minutes!

My goodness, I don't check your blog for one day and look at what I missed!! That Olivia is going to wear you guys out!! I'm hating it that she's back in the hospital, but hopefully you'll be getting some answers soon. I hope this ends up being a productive time for little Miss Olivia!! We'll be praying that she doesn't try any funny stuff and that she'll be heading home soon. I'm heading to my parents this weekend and they have dial up internet (grr..) so I'll probably have my sister give me an update!!
So did you feel the earthquake?? What a bizarre day!

We're so happy for no signs of cancer! Hopefully you guys can get some answers soon! Hang in there and tell little Olivia that we're praying for her. She is one tough cookie!
