Day 2 Admitted in Oakland.....

Today has yet again been another busy day for Delaney and the family. Mommy, Daddy, and Oakland pedicatrics have been busy around the clock with Delaney's care. With a continued focus on her care Delaney was able to supress her temperature and drop it below the 100.4 mark, which is the critical level the doctors are keeping an eye on.......but then again we are talking about Delaney on FIERCE FRIDAY and we knew she was up for a fight with the Team behind her! Delaney is currently on 13 different medication, of which 7 are antibiotics to fight off an infection, especially on her central line and because she is neutropenic and has no defense of her own. Delaney was in some pain last night due to the mucositis, which is getting better with pain meds and magic mouth wash. The doctors took a culture sample yesterday and we got the 24 hour results back, which were negative with no infection and they will also look at the 48 hour results tomorrow. Delaney mood is improving since she has been admitted but her counts are low and in the last 12 hours she has had 2 platelet transfusions. The doctors want to be cautious before sending Delaney back home, so it looks like we will be here for a few more days until she gets her counts back up and is healthier to return home.

Thanks you for your love, support, and prayers.

"And though she be but LITTLE, she is FIERCE!"
