Relief For Now

We just got back a little bit ago from Ella's doctor appointment with the oncologist. Of course my heart was racing all morning. While in the exam room waiting for the doctor, I had asked the nurse which doctor was working in the clinic today and she said so and so. A few minutes later, the oncologist who oversees Ella's case walked in and our hearts just dropped because we thought this meant bad news. But luckily, he just happened to be around and wanted to come in and check on her. He said that her platelet count had dropped some (91 for those of you who understand the numbers) but everything else looked great in her blood including the fact that there were no blasts (bad cells) and we would just continue to watch her monthly. She weighed in at a whopping 21 lbs 11 oz and was extremely healthy......great news. So now I will just relax for the next month!! Below is a picture of Ella and daddy on our way to lunch after her doctor appointment. Notice the bow in her hand that is suppose to be in her hair. Sorry the quality is not so good but it is from my cell phone.
