Hannah Update 12.1.08 chemotherapy today. Hannah's red blood counts and platelets are still very low, so she's going to get two more units of blood and a unit of platelets instead. Her platelets have to be between 50,000-75,000 before they will start chemo, and they are at 7,000 today. Her red counts are not as low as they were last week, but she could tell by the way she was feeling that they were starting to get low again. We will have bloodwork done again on Wednesday or Thursday this week to see where we stand. The good news is that her ANC (immunity level) is now up to 1,296....and she is hoping to go to school tomorrow! This is a huge step, because she hasn't been to school since September! Getting blood today should really boost her energy level, and she is really looking forward to starting back. Please be in prayer that her blood cell and platelet production will begin to kick in, and that she will have the stamina to get back into the swing of school. Thank you for your continued prayers for our family....God is good, all the time!
