Hanging in there...

Fevers are still coming and going, but the doctor was just in and said he's not too worried about them. My liver numbers are still looking o.k., too, which is a really big praise. For now we're just waiting for my counts to come back up. They started growth factor shots with me again (Neupogen) a few days ago to help the marrow produce cells. As of last night my counts were:

Hemoglobin - 8.9
Hematocrit - 25.8
Platelets - 9
White Count - 0.1

Amy, I found your blog through another blog I read on a regular basis. I've spent all morning reading the archives and trying to surpress the tears. I'm the mom of 3 kids (Eric is 5, Alec is 2, and Annika is 6 months) and the thought of going through what you're going through while trying to be a mom too is more than I can bear. Please know that I am storming heaven's gates on your behalf.

Even though we've never met, and probably won't this side of heaven, you're my sister in Christ. Thanks for sharing your journey with us.

As a side note, my family attends the Sovereign Grace church here in Roanoke, VA and just got back from Revive (which replaced Celebration for our region). So you're even more like family! =)

Hugs from afar,
Jen L.
