General Update

Nothing much to note, just wanted to check in with everyone. My bilirubin count has been stabilizing. Please continue to pray that it stays in normal ranges. My white count was up to .2 yesterday, finally up from .1, so we're making progress. I've been reeiving Neupogen shots for several days now to help with that. Also lots of platelet infusions and blood at least once a week. If you live in the St. Louis area, Barnes is always in need of platelet donors. You can't donate for me specifically, but know that they will be used by someone who needs them.

As usual, thanks so much for all of your prayers on our behalf, and for your encouraging comments, notes, and cards.

Blessings,
Amy

Amy, I check in from time to time on your blog and I can't even remember how I originally found you! I am praying for your healing and restoration and also for God's glory to be shown through your circumstances. May God bless you with continuous strength to find encouragement and hope for each day.

Amy,
I was thinking of you and praying for you this afternoon, so I am glad you updated. I will continue to pray for your blood work and bilirubin counts to stabilize.

Love,

I thought this might make you smile, Amy. My daughter Mandy, who hasn't posted anything in a year, came in today and right off the bat she said, "How's Amy doing today, Mom?" Apparently I talk about you a lot. :-)

I'm glad you're keeping up too. We are praying for you and we have friends who are praying for you too. When it is God holding us up, we can be sure we have a firm foundation. I also pray that His support is always very real and clear to you.
