Team Maggie Update Day 18 PM
What happens when your Neutrophil (white blood cell count) basically triples from Saturday to Sunday? You feel freaking fantastic!!!
So good that you might want to take a spin or two around the hospital floor!
Oh, and how does it make mom feel? Well enough to take the boys out for dinner and escape the hospital for a bit!
And when you're Neutrophil count triples, there's talk of discharge in 2 weeks or so to the Neely House in 1-2 weeks! Hmmm 8 days is Maggie's birthday... What a birthday present that would be!
Just a couple of reminders.
Mark your calendar for Monday, August 19th, because that night will be a Team Maggie Night at Miguel’s Mexican Restaurant on the Hogan Road in Bangor. They will be donating 10 percent of all the dinner sales to Team Maggie, and there will be a 50/50 raffle. If you would like to help with the planning, please call Chris Popper at 941-1994 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Maggie turns 5 on August 19th. She will be in the hospital still on her birthday. If you’d like to send a card or a gift, her address is
BMT Unit Floating 6
Attention: Maggie Rudnicki
750 Washington Street
Boston, MA 02111
I asked Maggie’s mom what she likes and this is Lauren’s reply
“She loves the Boston bruins, lip gloss and scary things (ghost stories, vampires, goosebumps books etc) those are a few favorites but honestly just well wishes are all she needs!”
Please keep praying. Prayers do work! They’ve made those little white cells grow, and those white blood cells are what’s making Maggie feel so good. The change in in the past DAY has been nothing short of miraculous! Pray for a peaceful night and week ahead. Pray for a sense of calmness for Maggie, Lauren and the entire Rudnicki family. Pray that those white blood cells continue to grow, and grow quickly! Pray for healing, pray for strength! Pray that they can be discharged to the Neely House soon!
