Good night and good morning

Olivia had a really good night. The fact that she isn't really sick makes a big difference! She got her platelets and that bumped her up to 55,000. They are going to give her some more during her procedure today just to give her a little extra boost. Gee, maybe we could even make it 4 days without needing a refill this time?!?
Anyway, her INR is down and her platelets are up, so it sounds like it's a go for the impedance test today. Someone from the GI lab should be down around 8:30 to place the tube. Then a quick x-ray to make sure the placement is correct and the test begins...
It will be really interesting to see how she handles this. She's never really been a fan of people sticking tubes down her nose, but who would enjoy that? Any guesses on how long it takes before she yanks it out??? It's going to be a long day, so you'll probably hear from me a lot. I apologize in advance. Have a great morning!
