For Riley Stanforth. and Lisa Brown; your update :-)

Cousin Melissa and Liz at Children's on the Pulmonary floor for her breathing treatment.

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war rise up against me, yet I will be confident. (Psalm 27: 1, 3)

We are now in the waiting phase. DI2 should start on Oct. 9, if her counts are high enough. Her ANC has to be 750, she is only at 300, her platelets are at 76k and they need to be at 75k. Please let's pray that she makes it on time. With that being said and her ANC only being 300, you MUST have a flu shot to visit Liz. While Liz is neutropenic, no immune system, please call first if you would like to visit. If you know that you have been in close contact with anyone sick, please do not come by to visit at this time. We have come too far to let anything happen to her. Liz will not be in school the rest of this year. We are hoping that she will be able to go back sometime in January or February 2010.

Even though Liz will not be able to have many visitors because of her ANC, she is feeling much better. We are thankful for the good days.

Please continue to pray for the following:
counts to go up
pain to subside
she is able to go to the homecoming Oct. 10
her Doctors, Nurses, and anyone involved in her care
the families and children on A5 South

The prayers are coming your way. Come on ANC and homecoming! Liz, even with everything you've been through and even though you're bald, you'll still be the most beautiful girl there! Miss you guys.

Praying that Liz does something really out of the ordinary and starts the next phase ON TIME! What a mind blower that will be, but she can do it. We'll pray those numbers into submission!

Hugs, Lisa

Keep the faith Liz. Have you got a dress for the Homecoming yet? We are praying for your counts to be good so you can start your next phase.
