They are releasing Giovanni tomorrow. His counts have been great, his platelets are at normal levels and his Neutrophils are at 970. He is getting a little boost of Hemoglobin today, as his has been running just above their transfusion cut off. They said they are not worried though and believe it is from the daily blood draws.
We are so, so, so thrilled. I truly cannot imagine not living here anymore. It will be 60 day and 59 nights tomorrow. He is a strong, amazing little boy who inspires me with his ability to keep smiling while being stuck in the box. He indeed kept the smile on my face each day. In these last few days as he has noticed me pulling my mask down more he has started waking me up by pulling my mask down and giving me a big kiss with his little cheek smashed up against mine. It really makes my heart skip with such love and cuteness!
I apologize that this is a short post. I have SO much to tell you all about including our Romanian Market experience two weekends ago, My sweet, nurturing kids, Liviana's cuddling, The crazy Milan market and much more. It also took some great photos today of Aria, Miles and Liviana that I will try to get to in the next couple of days.
I am tired (mostly emotionally probably) and want to feel rested for the big day tomorrow. I have been told release time is 2pm...7am CDT. EEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKK! We are short a bed and Brad had a whirlwind fiasco trying to get one at Ikea...another long story.
I will blog in the next couple of days when we are home. I am hoping that I will be able to load video of the homecoming. I have had problems downloading and uploading videos so I hope it all works out this time so we can share the big day.
My family is going to all be together! It brings me such joy! The peace will come tomorrow when I look at all four faces together and take a deep breath.
Hug Your Babies!
Check up DAY!
