Day 22

Yesterday I shaved Craig’s hair, so he would have less of a shaggy pillow as his hair falls out. He’d look like a real tough guy, if it weren’t for that hospital gown! =) The doctor had told us that when Craig’s white blood cell count hits 1000, he would start to feel better. Yesterday his count was at 400, today 900. His second round of fever finally broke today (yes, it came back after Thanksgiving). Craig is able to stay awake and talk for longer periods of time every day, which is so great to see. Now his biggest frustration is that he wants to hurry up and get home! No word yet on exactly when, but hopefully by this weekend when his parents visit.
