SURPRISE ....... we are not going in tomorrow as planned. She is delayed again. Elizabeth's counts were on the rise and we were sure she would make tomorrow but her ANC has dropped down below 500. All of her other counts are behaving and going in the correct direction. Please pray that they stay that way and add the ANC's to it. This will be her third delay in this phase trying to finish it out. She will have limited visiting privileges because she runs a great risk of infection.
On the bright side, she will get to start school and be in more than we thought during her first two trimesters. The bummer is it just keeps delaying the start of maintenance. As it looks, she will not be able to attend the camp put on by Children's Hospital Oncology Staff, Liz was looking forward to going to that. Joel, Leah, Bobby, and Critter are all going to attend.
If you get a chance, go to my fundraising page at: http://pages.lightthenight.org/soh/ButlerCo09/clothrop
Save the date ... Sept. 17, 2009 for Light The Night.
Please pray for the following:
Her friend Alex and his family. Hospis has been called into help with the needs of the family
The kid's and families on A5 South
ANC's to go up so we can continue on next Tues.
For Strength and understanding in difficult times.
I hope I can one day shine as bright as the children do on A5 South.
