Happy Easter Weekend

I just got the call and still have tears of joy running down my cheeks. Her ANC went down to 2520. Still a bit high, but way better than last week (almost 6000) and trending down, not up. Her white blood count went from 6.0 to 3.4. This is also good. Nurse said her numbers looked better and he may just have to tweak her at-home chemo a little. They want the ANC about 1000-1500.

Praising God today. Of all days Good Friday. Reminds me a bit of a couple years ago. We thought my Mom was dying on Good Friday. We made all the preparations, etc and sat with her all weekend in the ICU. On Easter Sunday she made a miraculous (by all accounts) recovery and there was little to no explanation. We got to enjoy being with her for one more year.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers. My girl is out working on some Easter eggs right now and preparing food for our family's Good Friday Fish Fry. I cannot even explain the worry we have been through this week....the amount of time we spent in prayer...and now the tremendous feeling of it being lifted off of us in time for the holiday.

Happy Easter.
