Little T's med apt

Little T's platelets were 100, so slightly up from last week. He weighed 10.5kg. We're weaning him a bit more off the steroids. We're hoping that Little T will not need chemo (please!), but we're not out of the woods yet. We need his numbers to continue this slow upwards trend despite cutting back on steroids. So far so good.

Tomorrow we go back to UCSF for their vascular anomalies clinic...at 8am. Gah!

I need to call in his blood pressures tomorrow.

I turned in my edits for my "Gimp Geek" essay last night. I'm writing a cover letter for a new publisher for my picture book. You may have noticed I haven't mentioned my non-fiction book in a while. I've not worked on it. Been too overwhelmed. But things are settling down well with the new nanny. Special K hugged her on the first day and sits on her lap.

And hopefully we'll have made our huge financial decision soon.

So I'm hoping that some major aspect of my life besides my marriage (thank the gods) will not have issues hanging over it, and I can have the headspace to get back to my non-fiction book.

Wasn't sure if you'd see this comment on your "profile" entry and since you mentione dyour picture book wanted to pass this on:
The Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators has a $1500 grant for "Works in Progress." There's also a Picture Book grant. You can use toward childcare and other things. Materials to apply need to be postmarked no earlier than 2/15 and arrive no later than 3/15.
Here's the link: http://www.scbwi.org/awards.htm
If I don't get it, I hope you do :)

Cheers,
