Hannah Update 10.29.08

Well, it's official....Hannah has completed her second round of radiation treatments! We were told that she will have an MRI in about a week, and if it shows any remaining tumors, she may have to have some additional radiation, but it would be very targeted, and would just be about 5-10 sessions. Of course, we are praying for a clear MRI, with no sign of any remaining tumors! All together, she has undergone a total of 52 radiation treatments, and she would really like to be done with them for good! We are so thankful that she has come through all of this radiation without experiencing any of the really severe side effects which were described to us at the beginning.

Tomorrow, she will have bloodwork at our local doctor's office in Hot Springs--no trip to Little Rock needed. If her platelets are low, we will go back to Children's on Friday for an infusion, but that should be her last time to need platelets, since they should begin to rebound on their own soon.

I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)--This verse pretty much says it all...God has given us supernatural strength to get through these last five weeks. He has also used His people to bless us in so many ways...we are so thankful!

God is good, all the time! --Jill & Brad
