Over the river and through the woods....

ANC 270! Yah!!

Henry and I will be leaving the hospital today to join Bryan and the girls at home. The holiday timing really couldn't be better. Since his counts have recovered, he no longer needs to be sequestered, so we'll get to see our germy snotty cousins (sorry, boys, but you know it's the truth) on Christmas day.

When I changed Henry this morning I noticed a lot of bruising on his knees. The nurse confirmed my suspicions that his platelets are down, to 10 this morning which is the lowest he's been thus far. We'll need a tank-up before we get discharged, but then he should be in good shape for the next few days.

Dear Bryan and Family,
Your parents sent an e-mail yesterday telling us about Henry. Know he is getting good care and is in God's hands. We will be adding him to our prayer list and will keep reading your blog. I will let Tom and Wade know, too, as I am sure they will want to see this kid who looks just like his dad did as a young soccer player.
Have a wonderful Christmas filled with hugs, kisses, and special moments as we all celebrate Jesus' birthday. Thinking of you, Mike and Jane Niday in Oveland Park, KS.

SANTA'S BEST GIFT

Yesterday the doorbell rang - there stood Henry on our front porch. He hasn't been able to come to our house since October!

I cried with joy, Granddad teared up too - and this courageous little boy just takes it all in stride.

He's such a blessing and our BEST Christmas Gift this year.
