Kristen needed blood and of course it's the 4th of July weekend so we ended up here in the hospital. As it turned out she also needed platelets. Kristen continues to have a fever so she is receiving another dose of antibiotics. The doctor came in to see her and was asking about her pain level. I really think that for the most part she has been comfortable. It is hard to tell the difference between pain and just not feeling good. Leukemia causes bone pain so the doc was concerned that maybe she is having pain. He ordered a huge bottle of pain medication for us to take home. I am not too thrilled as this is just another reminder of what is now before me. I try not to think about that. But it's hard not to. I am still trying to soak in every moment. Even though we have spent this entire day here in the hospital it still goes down as a fun filled Saturday.
