We are all home! Esther's fever went away and never came back, but her hemoglobin was dropping quickly, so the doctor decided that in order to enjoy a weekend at home without any blood draws or trips to Denver we should do a blood transfusion today. She handled it well and I was surprised to realize how quickly her complexion changed. I didn't realize how pale she was. As we were driving home she commented along the way how we were "almost home." Home is a sweet place to be.
There is a big tree in the lobby of the oncology unit that has lots of branches with hats hanging from the branches and big baskets of hats at the bottom of the tree. This is the first hat Esther choose. Here's a picture of the first hat Esther choose, a sweet choice I think.
