Mally spiked a fever, so we ended up at clinic at 8am. That led to blood cultures, CBC, and antibiotics. Poor girl was super dehydrated on top of her counts "sucking" as the doctor said.
She's had blood pooling in her nose (I had figured her platelets were low), her count was 20,000 normally its 200,000+.
Her white count is 50! (NOT GOOD!) She has 0 ANC too.
She had her first platelet transfusion. We had a good 5 days at home while we were there. Hopefully she will bounce back quickly but that's not looking likely with those numbers.
We are also canceling the wedding, a decision I have thought long and hard about but its honestly causing too much stress. We just need to take care of our girls and focus all of our energy on them right now. I just feel this is very important to remain emotionally stable and strong. We will not be doing a courthouse wedding because it is very important to both of us to have a religious meaningful ceremony, I am also sure that I want us to write our own vows as well.
So whatever, just another bump. We just need our daughter to be healthy so she can fully enjoy our wedding as Well. We are a family with lots of love regardless of a wedding or not. Ryan is my best friend, an amazing father so we are already in it for the long run so cancer you can $#%& off.
OK- this sucks! Hope she bounces back sooooooooon! HUGS!ReplyDelete
There is so much love between you and Ryan, you have the kind of love I will wait to find, and there is so much genuine love in your family. I can understand your decision for now. I am sad to hear about Mallory with her fever. My sincere prayers are with her and your family in FL. I continue to pray for Mallory and for all of you, and there are so many more people here praying as well. Feel better Mallory.ReplyDelete
It will make the wedding that much more speical :) I understand sweetie..and when it happens we will party like there is NO TOMORROW!!!! Love uReplyDelete
postponed honey...postponed... the happy day will come :-)ReplyDelete
Love to all,
Thinking about you and your family out here in Cali. A wedding does not determine your love for one another. Your two sweet girls know their mommy and daddy love them to the moon and back and they will get to witness your beautiful ceremony someday soon. For now, lots of kisses to Mallory and I hope you guys go home soon!ReplyDelete
