A good night

From the sounds of it, Olivia had a really good night - slept almost the entire night. She woke up about 4 and had some juice and went right back to sleep. Now, why doesn't she do that at home???
They were able to get an IV in last night and our sweet little girl didn't even cry. Obviously, at least 75% of the credit has to go to the nurse that put it in, but it just shows how comfortable she is with everyone up here. She has been showing off for everyone and is loving all the attention. She definitely shows off her ornery streak, as she was pulling up at the end of the crib and trying to pull out the cables from the monitor!
She got all of her blood throughout the night so she should be all tanked up. I had turned her oxygen up to 2L at home on Saturday and had not been able to get it back down, but she is back down to her normal 1L this morning. It's amazing how much a little extra blood can do.
Her bone marrow biopsy is scheduled for 8:30. Dr. Torres will be in here doing her sedation and Dr. Al will be performing the procedure. It should only take about 20 minutes or so and then we will just wait for the results. Because of Olivia's extensive track record, Zac and I have learned not to worry about things until we have concrete evidence of something. So, as of now, all we can do is pray and play the waiting game. Fortunately, we are really good at both of those things!
Keep you posted...
Oh, I almost forgot. Her MRSA test came back positive. Surprise, surprise. So, yellow gowns it is today!

So when Olivia gets sleep do you get sleep? I'm praying for your patience today as you wait for the test results. You always seem to be so calm & taking this one day or one hour at a time & I'm already getting bogged down in the details no one has. Being around you has been good for me. ;-)

Brooklyn's doing great. The kids are playing stuffed animal party which is vastly different from animal party. I love it when other peoples kid's can entertain mine!

You all are in our thoughts and prayers.....hopefully Olivia is just being ornery and everything will turn out okay like before....maybe she was just thinking she was needing some attention..or maybe just missing all the people in Peoria...tee hee!
