Sunday Nov. 2, Day 6
Just wanted to update everyone quickly; Elizabeth is receiving a blood transfusion today. Her white blood cell count is at zero which means she has no ability to fight off any type of virus, bacteria, or any type of cough cold...etc...
Elizabeth will not be able to see visitors today due to that fact and the complications that can arise due to the transfusion.
Please continue to pray for few complications; or none would be better; and hopefully she will be able to see people again soon.
Elizabeth has school, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and numerous doctors in and out in the mornings and makes it difficult for her to have visitors before 2:00pm.
I just want to thank everyone for all the prayers, cards, meals, gifts, visit, etc....there is no way I can can even begin to tell you how much love and support we feel from each and everyone of you; nor will I ever get out thank-you notes...I am good but not that good; so much came in when I could not even think or see clearly. All I do know is that it came and continues to come through one of the hardest times of our lives and it is, and you are, a true blessing to this family.
Please continue to pray for Elizabeth and the Lothrop family. It is by Gods grace and your prayers and support that we are doing as well as we are. Remember, Tues. is a big day and we are praying for her to be a Rapid Responder and have minimal effects from the chemo.
Love and blessings to all,
