Liz had her monthly check-up today and things look good. Her counts have gone down a little but still in the normal range. I suppose ours do the same thing, it's just we do not have cancer or are not in remission from cancer. The doctor is not concerned, he said it is probably her body fighting a minor cold or allergies.
She is looking so healthy and strong, one would never know that she has been in a fight for her life. I am so proud of her and the way she has handled every situation she has been in since she was diagnosed.
Our race is up and running, no pun intended. We are so excited about it! Go to www.getmeregistered.com and look for Sept. 3, 2011 Blazin With <3 (love) and register. It is an evening race with cash prizes for the race and corn hole. Corn hole space is limited so if that is what you want to do, sign up quick! Come on out that Saturday evening and support five wonderful kids from the Mason School district that have blood cancers. If you are not running, we will also have the Blood Unit there from Hoxworth, to donate blood. Hoxworth is donating $10 per person to the race for people who donate that evening. They will also be doing Be The Match for the bone marrow. PLEASE, be a hero for someone. None of these kids would be here without blood products. Liz would not have made it through Saturday night without the blood products.
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. Hebrews 13:16
Please continue to pray for the researchers and doctors that are fighting to save these children and adults.
Pray for the patients on A5 and their families.
Pray for the ones that have been told right from the start that they cannot be saved.
Pray for Joel Brown. He is doing well and so close to the end of his BMT. Pray for him to stay germ free and healthy.
Continue you to pray for little Maya Collins, another Mason student. I believe she is around seven,she has AML.
Life is not always fun and easy but it is always a gift. Treasure the time you have been given.
May you be blessed beyond measure and love always ~ Christine
