Hannah Update 2.3.09

Well, we are spending another night in the hospital. Hannah has had a few albuterol breathing treatments today, and they are going to do a couple of different kinds of treatments tonight. One involves wearing a vest which will squeeze her lungs, and the other is a CPAP type breathing machine that she will use overnight. She received two units of blood today and a unit of platelets...her red blood counts had dropped pretty dramatically since yesterday...apparently a side effect of the chemo. She has slept away most of our stay this time, so hopefully this infusion of blood will help with her energy level. They tell us we will probably go home sometime tomorrow.

Bethany has developed a pretty severe cold...a strep test was negative, but the doctor put her on an antibiotic just to make sure, since Hannah's immunity is so low. Please pray that she recovers quickly and that none of the rest of us get it, especially Hannah. Your prayers continue to carry us along day by day, and we thank you for that.
