We woke up to a beautiful sunny day. I arrived at the hospital armed with all the stuff I would need for an overnight stay and then probably an hour after Terence and Caitlyn left, our doctor came past declaring that he really thought she looked too well to stay in hospital. Not only that, but her blood cultures came back negative, she's had no fevers and her counts are busy coming up. Her neutrophils are sitting around 0.74. And so he charted an antibiotic that would last for 24 hours whereafter we had permission to leave. So I quickly sent a message to Terence to come back for us and it is always then that you suddenly wonder why you end up taking so much stuff to the hospital.
We arrived home around 3:30pm, quickly dropped off all our stuff and decided that there really was no time like the present. Bianca knew that she was going to get something special, but more than that she really didn't know and you should have seen her face light up when we stopped in front of the bicycle shop and told her that she would be able to choose a brand new bike. Just before we left we quickly put Caitlyn's new tricycle in the car and so when we arrived at the bicycle shop Terence took it out so that Caitlyn could "choose it".
Now weather-permitting, we are all on track for Friday the 18th, I'm so glad Bianca is discharged from hospital!
