Two Weeks

Drew asked for his phone for the first time today. I knew it wouldn’t be long before bejeweled and angry birds was taken away from me. Today marks two weeks of Drew being super sick in the hospital. He had his 7th plasma treatment- out of 10.  They are painful and long but Drew gets meds to help him through it.

Doctors were in and out a lot- they said Drew’s enzymes that fight copper are low. They are not sure why they dropped… they were high last week. So, they gave Drew four units (bags) of plasma today. Which is interesting to me because tomorrow they will wash it out of him during the plasmapheresis. This is why I am not in the medical field.

Drew is more talkative and hungry now. I am looking forward to spoiling him with smoothies, once he has cravings and redbox movies when he can concentrate.  It’s an interesting thing spending so much time at the hospital…. When I am here I look forward to getting out and then once I’m out I miss Drew too much and can’t wait to get back.

Happy Labor Day Weekend & thanks for praying alongside us for 100% recovery for Drew!
