Liz and Joel ... just hangin at the Brown's;)
Lizzy's immune system, ANC, is 2840. the normal range for an immune system is between 1800 - 8000. Her lymphs are still low at 22 and the normal range is 34-42. She will get there, it is just Her immune system is just a little baby ")
Lizzy's next check up is June 10. Please continue to pray for her body to continue to recover and for her to stay in remission. Remember, there have been wonderful strides made in the way of blood cancers but...there is still no cure; only long term survival. As a parent, this is not acceptable.
Jimmy's EE has gotten worse since the last scope. No changes have been made in his protocol and he will be re-scoped in three months. As far as his hips go....he has issues, but tries to work through them. He doesn't want to give up any summer time for recovery time. His body will tell us when the replacement will happen. Right now he has learned how over come some of the pain and discomfort. Please continue to pray for Jimmy and the challenges that lie ahead.
Catherine will be getting her tonsils out next month. Please pray that the surgery is successful and she has as little pain and discomfort as possible.
Joel continues to do well and is one day away from day 100. He/we are praying that he will be able to start school next year. After placing an EG tube, feeding tube, down his throat he is finally gaining weight!!!!
I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers,
Blessings and prayers always ~ Christine
