Please Keep Praying
Today has been an emotionally exhausting day for us. Her numbers again were too low to continue on in her treatment and they decided that they want to do a bone marrow biopsy this Friday to make sure nothing else is going on there. We have to be at the clinic at 8:30 and her procedure is at 10. She had four of these the first month, but after her fourth one we were so thankful to be done with them (they said she shouldn't need anymore bone marrow tests) so it is hard to be going back to sedation, knowing they again will be looking at her marrow. They said today that they would be surprised if they see something bad (it is rare that there's a relapse), but they have to do this since her numbers have been down for so long to know for sure. There are many ways this could go Friday, but we just need to pray like crazy that they see no leukemia cells in her marrow. We know God is sovereign and we continue to trust in Him as we go through this uncertain time. We are trusting that they will find nothing bad and that her body is just taking a little longer than normal to recover from the last phase. Please get everyone you know to pray with us, that her marrow would look great and that her numbers would by themselves sky rocket these next few days. Thank you...
