Just a quick update to let you know that we had a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by family and good food! All of Hannah's grandparents were able to come, along with many of her aunts, uncles and cousins. Hannah has felt well all week, with the exception of some queasiness in the mornings, which she attributes to the yucky taste still remaining in her mouth from the radiation treatments. She was able to enjoy all of the visitors and the food, so we were very thankful!
Tomorrow we return to Children's Hospital for bloodwork, and possibly to start chemotherapy, depending on what her blood counts look like. Judging by how well she's been feeling, I am guessing that there's a good chance she'll get to start her chemo tomorrow. We will go prepared to spend the night, just in case she has an adverse reaction to the chemo, but they have told us that we should be able to go home after a period of observation. I will bring Hannah's laptop with us to the hospital tomorrow, and will probably send out an update from there.
One of the things we are the most thankful for during this Thanksgiving season is you, the readers of these updates who are so faithful to pray for Hannah and our family. Words can never express how grateful we are to all of you for keeping us lifted up before the Father on a regular basis. Thank you.
God is good, all the time!
Jill & Brad
