Hannah Update 1.12.09

It's Monday, so we are at Children's for our regular clinic day. They had a little bit of trouble getting her bloodwork done today...her PICC line would not give a blood return, so they had to stick her to draw blood. Thankfully, they got a good vein on the first try. We just got the results back, and her platelets have dropped to 31,000, so she will be getting platelets today. Hopefully, her PICC line won't give us any trouble during the infusion...I'm not sure what we do if it doesn't.

Hannah seems to have stabilized right now, as far as her vision and her balance are concerned, and we are thankful for this. We used the wheelchair for the first time today, just to come in to the hospital and get to the clinic, and it was really helpful. Hannah seems to be adjusting to the situation really well. We would ask that you pray for Bethany,'s been difficult for her to see Hannah going through these changes over the last couple of weeks. And because she's in school and out in the community every day, she continually fields questions from people who are concerned about Hannah and our family. Somtimes this can be difficult for her. So please keep her in your prayers, as well as Hannah. We hope to bring her with us to Children's next Monday, when Hannah gets her next dose of chemotherapy, just so she can feel a little more involved in her treatment.

We have received so many wonderful emails, phone calls, cards, gifts, etc., over the past couple of weeks. I wish we could respond to every one personally, but there are just too many. Please know that we are keeping every single email and card and we treasure each one. Thank you for keeping us reminded that God is good, all the time!

Jill & Brad
