Drop It Like It's Hot

Ruby had a bit of a restless night last night; lots of moving around in her crib and she even stood up a few times and stared me down. But she still woke up before 8AM with plenty of energy. Oh yeah, and attitude. Today has been a day where I have said, "GENTLE" more than I've said any other words added together.
After a fairly successful oral med session last night and again this morning, Grandma Cathie came to play for several hours. That gave me a minute to send out some emails for the Buddy Walk and organize a few details for this week. Ruby ran all around the hospital, and proceeded to still have plenty of energy when she came back to the room for rounds and lunch. We were just finishing lunch up when Ruby's friend from down the hall came to visit. One would think that Ruby may be a bit tired at this point, especially since it was close to nap time anyway. Nope. She continued to act like she'd consumed an espresso and run around the room like a crazy woman, mostly throwing toys at Claire as a way of sharing with her.
This is the same child whose platelet levels are so low today that she needs a transfusion after nap time. You'd seriously never know this girl is anything but crazy healthy....she is a force to be reckoned with! So her platelet levels dropping are likely a sign that the rest of her numbers will drop in the next few days as well.
