Hi all!!

I received a call from Randy's dad, Mr. Lothrop just a bit ago. He called to let us know that LIZZY WENT HOME TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

According to Mr. Lothrop, yesterday's report on the blasts were the preliminary findings. The final results came back today, and Lizzy's blasts are <1%!!!! (Guess those preliminary results aren't always what they're cracked up to be!)

We believe that means Lizzy will not have to have those 2 extra weeks of Induction Chemo therapy, and that she can go into the next phase which is Consolidation. My understanding is that Consolidation is when Lizzy will be inpatient for 3-4 days every 4 weeks or so.

I will update you with details as soon as I get them!

Philippians 4:4-11
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: REJOICE! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord IS near! Be anxious about nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, WITH THANKSGIVING, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the Plans I have for you," delcares the Lord,plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back from captivity."

Thank you for your faithful prayers and friendship for Lizzy and the Lothrop family.
Let's keep praying, offering that "sacrifice" of praise, and thanking God for his perfect timing. (Even when things are hard!)

As Christine's mom said: "Have Turkey will travel!"....I'm thinking that means travel right over to Mason Ohio for Thanksgiving with Lizzy and her family! Thank you Lord!

Oh my gosh! I am so glad to see that the preliminary results were not quite what the reality is and that you're home! Now, you can move on to the next step; having a wonderful Thanksgiving. You've got so much to be thankful for this year in spite of it all. Happy Thanksgiving from Cleveland!

Love,
