Day +222: Yesterday we went in for labs and had good luck getting the blood draw in one poke, which was so much better than last week. We are waiting on Epstein-Barr Virus results, but all other labs have come back normal. Later this week or next week, we will also get Kiira’s 30 day engraftment results done to see how the boost of donor cells helped her numbers. We pray that they’ve increased so that we won’t be looking at a second transplant.
We got a baby gate for the stairs from a friend (thank you!) and Kiira is upset she can’t climb the stairs, but I feel far more comfortable with having it there. Especially because she took a spill last night on the stairs, but she only suffered a very minor scratch. I couldn’t believe it! Maybe this boost is giving her stronger skin already.
Kiira has been so loving lately. She gives us so many hugs and kisses and started saying “Love you”. When I think back to a year ago and trying to imagine what life would be like now, I envisioned the worst and to protect myself, I was shut down. But, we have this amazing, loving little girl that melted my heart, reminding us she can overcome more than imaginable. And that is why we need to take it one day at a time and not worry about what the future brings.
