They cancelled Casey's scope today due to low platelets.  Which would have been ok, but they never told us.  They were supposed to take him down for the procedure at 11:45 a.m.  When the infectious disease team came in at 2:30 I asked what was going on, if they forgot about him?  They checked into it and told me that it will now happen on Wednesday.  The unfortunate thing about that is they held food and beverages from him for the procedure and he actually felt as though he might have been able to eat something today. 
It is now the bewitching hour of 4:00 p.m., where everything starts going haywire with him.  All in all he does seem to be better than what he had been, but still has a long way to go.  Maybe we can watch "House" tonight and figure this all out.
Meanwhile, I have had to cancel the puppies surgery for the second time.  We have not been able to give them the attention they need, but they still love us anyway.  Aren't dogs great?
As always, thank you for your concerns, comments and prayers.


  1. Peggy,
    I want you to know that our family is keeping all of you in our prayers. Lauren placed your family with special intentions for Casey on the prayer list at Holy Name High School where she attends. I know this is a rough road for all of you.....if there is anything we can do for you do not hesitate to reach out to us. Please let Casey know we are thinking of him and we miss him at the pool.
