Update

We talked to the doctor a little while ago and unfortunately, we will not know the exact percentage until Monday.  When we left yesterday, we were told that we would know by last night.  The machine was really backed up yesterday and then today her marrow did go through the machine, but the pathologist that reads the results was gone and will not be back until Monday.  We were sitting on the edge of our seat all day, waiting for the phone to ring.  I finally called the doctor tonight and he explained what was going on. He did say that he looked at the results and although he is not a pathologist, he feels that she is where she should be at this point.  He would not give me a number (even though he hinted to one) and said that on Monday we will know that number for sure. He said that we should be celebrating at this point though since Abbey has had no bumps in the road.  She has not had one fever, seems to be handling all the medication/chemos like a champ and we know the leukemia cells are coming down. Our hearts are filled with praise as we are encouraged by our talk with him.  We of course will be very happy to know the exact number, but we were thankful for his report.  God is moving guys and healing our baby!!  We'll let you know as soon as we know :)

Even though my husband and I have not met your family, we are praying for little Abbey's healing and for God's strength for the rest of the family.

When I first started reading the post saying you wouldn't hear until Monday I felt your anxiety but then I read the rest of the post and knew you had to be encouraged. Praise His Holy Name! We serve a mighty God and He does not disappoint!

Today in our small group, we just finished a study of the book of James. There was one passage that we read for today from James Chapter 5 that brought your family's journey into our minds.

The Prayer of Faith
13 Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make them well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
