Yeah, so the first person to call and wish Amanda a happy birthday was my mother. Great. Mom regaled her with tales of an amazing root called bloodroot. Read about it here! Nothing hotter than disfigurement!
Anyway, it's Amanda's 33rd birthday. She just got platelets yesterday, and now has a platelet count ~18,000, up from 48 when she first entered the hospital, and 38 a few days ago. That's a pretty dramatic difference.
I spent some time yesterday afternoon getting our new wireless camera installed, so now she can watch Alastair whenever he's in our den. Now I just have to get her a camera so that we can video-conference at night, and blow mommy kisses!
