Day +21.  Great news.  Casey gets to go home tomorrow.  His white blood count is 1.0, things are looking good.  I don't have to wear a mask anymore, and they took most of the signs off of his door (Transplant Isolation, Nuetropenia precautions, Contact Isolation, Beware of the Bob, etc.).  I guess I will have to start cooking again, but first I better get some food. Hopefully when he gets home he will be able to eat something.  Nothing tastes quite right, the nurses just made some recommendations on what to try.  He said put hot sauce on everything, it works.  Meat is not usually a favorite, but baked potatoes are usually a good bet.  We'll give that a try.  
Casey said tomorrow will be the first time he will have shoes on in over a month.  If he had to miss a whole month, this was a good one to miss.  I am looking forward to tomorrow.


  1. AMEN!! Hot sauce, shoes, and home sounds like all a great combo... ARe the cats and dogs planning a homecoming!!!? You all and especially Casey deserve a happy homecoming

    Look forward to seeing you back at the pool next

  2. That's great news! I'm sure it will be wonderful to get out of the hospital and get comfortable in a real bed and have real food.
    We'll send over a bottle of Taylor's favorite hot sauce from California!

  3. So glad you are coming home. The best part will probably be the privacy and sleeping in your own bed! We can't wait to see you again!
