Good news!

I'm a little bit scared to write this...the last time I wrote it, I jinxed us. BUT.....we have now had TWO consecutive days of negative blood cultures and TWO consecutive days of good platelet levels without transfusions! One more day of negative cultures and Juliet can get her PICC line back. That will cut down on how many times they will have to "stick" her. She is running out of spots for IVs. Because she is so tiny, her veins are very fragile - IV's don't usually last too long before her vein collapses. The PICC line is semi-permanent and will be a huge help.

Chris is coming down for a visit today. Jules loves her daddy, so hopefully, she will continue to behave. We want this upward trend to continue!

Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. Keep it up! :)


  1. Great news Jessica. hang in there. Alfred Chahine

  2. Wishing you all the best and for the cultures to remain negative. Great to talk to you last night on the phone and glad you are doing well yourself. Juliet is a "feisty one" too so she will get through this. Hoping and praying for all good things and a great week for everyone.
    Love you......Aunt Laurie
