Can you believe it's the end of December already?
I wish everybody a happy and blessing new year in Year 2009.
Xinxin is more alert since the morphine was cutting down. Today the pain doctor and Dr. Chiang agree to put one more patch for Xinxin and the dosage of morphine will keep the same as yesterday-2.0 ml per hour.
We are transferred to a higher class room---two-person room, because they want Xinxin to have a good rest and I can also pay to sleep on the other bed so I can use the toilet and eat inside the room which helps us a lot. So today is the first day of my shower in the 40+days.( Usually, I had to use a basin in the toilet outside ward to wash quickly as Xinxin cried a lot after I left her for more than one minute).
It's really nice of the nurses to be so concerned and Dr. Chiang also did the best he can for us. He booked two bags of platelets everyday until next week though Xinxin's platelets is not too low--37. He worried of bleeding since it's going to be holiday and Xinxin's bone marrow is very weak after so many rounds of Chemotherapy.
Xinxin is using the peripheral line for platelets and other things because they put Vanco Lock in the portacath.They also did the blood culture for Xinxin, so far no results--no news is good news.
Please continue to pray for Xinxin.
We thank each and every one of you for the endless love, support and prayers in the past year.
Wish the best for all of you in the coming new year
