Taylor had a blood transfusion yesterday

Landon and I spent the day at the hospital yesterday.  Taylor ended up needing a blood transfusion as her red blood cell counts were too low and weren't recovering - the doctors were worried that her organs might not be getting enough oxygen.  So Landon got to spend his last day with us snuggling Taylor while she slept. I think we all had a snooze while we were waiting for the transfusion to finish - it required us waiting an hour for her blood work to come back, then an hour for the blood bank to find a cross match for her blood type, then the blood bank had to deliver the blood, and they had to hook her up...then it was a three hour process to get the blood pumped into her.

We have to head back to the hospital tomorrow for her checkup and counts again to see if chemo #3 will be a go this week or not.  Landon headed back to Ponoka this morning at 3:30 a.m. for his 6:00 a.m. shift to start and we are heading into the city tonight to stay at my moms.

Brenda and Faye are going to take care of the doggies for us until we are done with this next chemo treatment - Thanks Ladies!

Well, Taylor is feeling pretty good these days and is quite the happy camper in her bouncy/vibrating chair - I will post some more pictures on our website of her.  

Thanks again for all your support!
