I was writing Nora #23 (below) when we got the great news. Nora is making blood and her platelets are now normal! She has a ways to go for white/red cells and neutrophils, and is still very susceptible to germs, BUT Nora is out of the hospital and in the Ronald McDonald House!!!! Happy Father’s Day to Shawn!!!!!
The good people at the “Francis Pope Foundation” have been paying for her stay and have just given us the biggest piece of mind knowing that she is in a safe environment and we don’t have to do the 4hr long commute from Mastic Beach to Manhattan everyday when she needs a CBC.
Best of all, she loves it there! The RMcD House is wonderful with tons of activities and sponsored dinners, which have a neutropenic menu option. They have every activity from the hospital but even better… they have an outdoor terrace complete with blooming flowers!
Please continue to pray for her. She cannot get sick if her transplant is to continue as well as it has been. Thank you so much!
