I can't take credit for these pictures as they were taken the other day by Sweet Pea's Mom. But I loved them so much that I just had to share them with anyone who hasn't found her blog yet.
Ella has been fever free for the past 24 hours so hopefully tonight she will remain that way. I am actually home for the second night in a row as my mom wanted to stay another night. I can't tell you how nice it is to be home for an entire day and be able to get a few things caught up around here!! Ella had to get some Red Blood Cells today as her hemoglobin had dropped below 8.0 which is the magic number that they will do transfusions. This isn't unexpected at all as the chemo kills all of the good blood cells as well as the bad ones. Her immune system has pretty much been wiped out and it is now going to hopefully start building back up!! The good news is that the bone marrow aspiration she had on Sunday showed less than 5% leukemia cells which is perfect. Now the game plan is to continue hitting her with chemo for the next 5 months to be absolutely sure to get every one of those nasty buggers that may be hiding in her body!! I truly believe that all of you out there who are praying for Ella are playing a big part in helping us to win this battle. Please don't stop now!!
The pictures from all of Ella's friends are starting to arrive and we can't wait to get them on her wall. Thank you guys so much as every time I open one, it brings an immediate smile to my face to see those adorable faces.
