Yaye for Faye!

On Tuesday Faye started walking the loop. She pushed her baby around one time and rode her bike around 3 times. She must've remembered how much she liked the attention from all the nurses because anytime they would say something to her she'd get a little burst of energy and go a bit faster.

Wednesday she slept almost the whole day. In the evening Stacey tried to wake her up and she didn't want to. Stacey told her she wanted to go on a walk because Nurse Katie was there and then Faye was ready to go.

Thursday she had a little more energy and the doctors took her completely off the TPN (nutrition). And her ANC was 160!

Today... they say Faye can go home!! She once again gets a week at home while her counts come back up! Thank goodness her fevers didn't stand in the way. They've stayed away all week and she stopped throwing up and started eating on her own. So, they're releasing her today. She'll have to go back tomorrow for some tests and to her local doctor to get a transfusion early next week. And then back next Friday. They are all SO excited. Faye told them a list of things they had to do while she was home including "make cupcakes, rent a movie and make pizzas".

Have a wonderful week at home, Faye! You've been fighting hard and deserve it!
