NOT Wordless Wednesday....Now I Have Something to Share....Results!!!


Yesterday we went and did another blood draw on Ella so her doctor could see if her platelets are coming up. Today I got the call from his office ........that they are!!!! Yay!!! They are still low at 55,000 but they are in an upward trend (from 36,000) which is what he wanted to see before he would give us the okay to go on our road trip. WE GET TO GO ON OUR ROAD TRIP!!! So if you are in our path.....hope to see you soon!! The other good news is that the chromosomal results from the bone marrow showed "no change". This means that she still is at a higher risk (30%) of getting leukemia but it hasn't started progessing in that direction at this time. So, once again, we can take a deep breath and not worry about it for now.!! Thanks again for everyone's prayers and well wishes.

***Note...in the picture above, she actually isn't throwing a fit, I think she was just making her scrunchy face. But it looks like she is MAD!!!

To answer your question, we are troopers, we went right back into our tent.

I just noticed my comment from this post is not here, must be cyber space surfing. Anyway, I thought to celebrate Ella's good results you should extend your road trip to include the East Coast. Haha, yeah I know,it's too far. That's not a road trip anymore it's a cross country nightmare.
