Counts

Tomorrow (Friday) morning we will be heading to the clinic for Abbey's blood to be checked to see where her counts are. Please pray that her ANC is up and that she would no longer be neutrapenic (which means she is much more susceptible to infection).

She has been acting great and seeming to be feeling good, but that isn't really a sign as to what's going on in her blood. We have been isolated at home all week, which wouldn't seem so bad since this was our life the first 7 months after she was diagnosed, but after we've had a taste of getting out more and doing more "normal" things, it has been hard to not be able to take her out again.

Also, next week is VBS at our church and she has been looking forward to that for months so it would be so hard for her to have to miss it. She had to miss dance class tonight and of course, our upcoming vacation is something that we are thinking about too as we go into tomorrow.

I will let you know when we get home. Anything over 750 is what we are praying for! Thanks!

Hoping counts are up! We too have been stuck at home or in hospital for past two weeks. Summer's counts are still down. I hope you all are able to enjoy a more free life soon!
