Okay, I'm going to start counting the days the way that I should. This is actually -6 day until transplant since the transplant is 6 days away. Natalie had a great day yesterday with a lot of visitors. Appetite and energy was up. Grant and I are usually really tired when Natalie's energy is up because she has helping her with her different projects. The biggest one has been decorating her new room, which is a jungle/animal theme this time. We have some action going on so far with origami cranes flying and elephants marching around the room. Of course, there are a couple of rainbows too. There's still a lot of work to be done though.
Last night, her heart rate started creeping up from normal. It worried us a little, but it was not dangerously high. Also she is starting to feel nauseous today. Sigh. We were hoping that she would maintain her hearty appetite until May 2nd, the date she is suppose to start feeling really really bad.
Please continue to keep us in your prayers for Natalie to have a successful transplant. I can't believe it's next Thursday. Some people call it their second birthday and some take pictures of it. Not sure what we will do and if Natalie will want us to take pictures.
