I wanted to let you know that Elizabeth's counts are not at the deemed numbers and we will not start our last treatment of High Dose Methotrexate before going on to the Delayed Intensification Phase I. Her ANC is 640, needs to be 750 and platelets are 73k, need to be 75k. The game plan is to go for a physical on Tues. at 8:00 am and have her blood work done in clinic. She will be admitted on Wednesday at 1:00 pm if her counts are right.
Elizabeth is pretty sad because UC's Relay for Life is on Friday and we were going as a family. Catherine, her sister, is very involved with this event and had Elizabeth reading a poem at 10:30 pm during the lighting of the luminaries. Catherine is now scrambling trying to find a replacement of Liz.
Thanks for all of your prayers. I am ok with this delay and feel very at peace. God has given me strength through your prayers.
Catherine, Liz, and myself will be walking in the Butterfly Walk on Sat. May 9. at Cottell Park, in Deerfield Township; it starts at 9:00 am. If you are able and want to, come on out and walk with us for some exercise and for a good cause; Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
Please continue to pray for the following:
counts to go up
minimal side effects
the families and kids on A5 South
Love and blessings,
