All of our prayers are answered, AMEN!


Dr. Jen, called and gave me the wonderful conclusive news that her bone marrow is just worn out. It is mad, tired, and wants to be left alone. I have news for that marrow, it is going to be hit very hard again before we hit maintenance. Dr. Jen said it looks beautiful, no leukemic cells or bacteria in her marrow. There are just a few good cells that are developed and developing and it just will take a bit for the cells to fully regenerate. I will take that!

The new game plan is: blood work at Liberty on Tuesday morning, with an admit on Wednesday to continue this DI1 phase out. I swear it has been day 29 for four weeks now. I feel like it is Ground Hogs Day over and over and over again and I am ready to break that cycle. Keep praying and God will answer. In order for her to have the admit her ANC needs to be 750 and her platelets 75K. Her platelets have been fine for this entire delay, they have been waiting for the ANC's to come to the party.

Elizabeth told me that her heart was lighter and I must admit mine is too. After Jen called I fell asleep for at least two hours. I guess I was pretty relieved and the exhaustion hit hard. All the mental worry and stress is behind us and we will move forward from this on our way to maintenance and a cure.

Liz was given the OK by her Doctors to go to Mason's Red Rhythm and Boom on Fri. and she is so excited. We will see you if you go but if not, have a wonderful 4th of July.

Please pray for:
Alex, that he remains as pain free as possible and leaves nothing unsaid to those he loves
Leah's fever breaks and her sores close up
For Lizzy's ANC to reach 750 and to finish out this phase strong.

Keep praying and blessings,

Christine
