Saturday w/ Heaven at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital update

As of 6:35 a.m she had more blood work done, her temp was 100.5 and she received Motrin to try and regulate fever.
7:45 a.m Heavens hemoglobins had went from 4.6 to 5.6 and her hematacrit had went from 14 to 32....they are saying that her good protein is low.
8:00 a.m Her temp was 100.3 and her bp was 121/59 at 8:20 a.m
8:55 Dr. Edwards was given the rundown as to what had taken place and he checked her ears, eyes, nose, etc.
9:20 a.m Dr. Edwards explained to her about the blood cells and how they work. She will be receiving another pint of blood shortly and on Monday she will have to have a Bone Marrow Culture taken.
I ask that all our family and friends...please continue to reach the throne of grace and we as a family thank and love you all.

 O.K. afternoon update.....

11:15 her bp was 98/45 and she then received her 2nd blood transfusion at 11:30
11:40 bp was 104/45-----12:00 her bp was 128/50 and her temp went up again to 102.2
15 minutes later her temp was 102.3 and bp was 111/51.
next 3 bp readings were 112/45, 113/48, 118/47
At 1:30 her blood transfusion was finished....her bp was 115/46 temp was 101.1 she was issued her 2nd bag of antibiotic and they will be checking her blood count again around 2:30..she is on her 5th saline bag and she just ate 5 chicken nuggets. :)
1:46 bp was 125/58 and at 2:05 her bp reading was 112/56

 The transfusions seem to be doing well thus far. Glory to God. She does have more energy now than before. The Dr.s are jsut curious as to where the infection is coming from. She jsut got done with mroe blood work and we should hear about the blood count in an hour or so. Again we can't thank you all enough for the prayers and kind words of encouragement
 Update on blood work....
Heaven's Hemoglobins has went from 5.6 to 7.7 but the Hematacrits have went from 32 to 23. This is after the 2nd blood transfusion. The hematacrits went down because they say it is due to how fast her body (absorbs) all it can. But please do not stop praying. The darkest hour is always just before dawn.

Also, I dont' know anything about the family but a Mom and Dad lost there son this morning. I ask you all to please say a pray for that family, was very sad...I cried and prayed for them throughout today. Makes me look at things from a different point of view. Feel so sad for them. Also,  they will be doing another blood count in the morning and that the Bone Marrow Biospy is still scheduled for Monday.
