Hannah Update 3.31.08

There haven’t been many updates lately, because, thankfully, there has been little to report. We saw Hannah’s oncologist again today, as we do every Monday, and he is really pleased with how well she is doing. Every Monday they will be taking blood, to make sure that her blood counts stay up while she is undergoing radiation and chemotherapy. Please pray that her blood counts will remain where they should be, because if they drop, we may have to stop the treatments for awhile in order to let her counts build back up before resuming. We would sure like to get these treatments behind us as soon as we can. Hannah continues to have some queasiness and even occasional dizziness, but so far nothing too bad as far as side effects from the treatments.

Bethany is still struggling with low grade fever, abdominal discomfort, and fatigue. She is having some new irritation in her eyes, possibly a recurrence of pink eye. Our primary care physician in Hot Springs has referred us to Arkansas Children’s Hospital, and we have an appointment there at 9:30 tomorrow morning. Please pray that we can get to the bottom of whatever is making her feel so rotten. I will send out an update if we find out anything for certain tomorrow.
Thank you again for all of your prayers, encouragement, and support. We continue to receive daily reminders (cards, emails, gifts, phone calls, etc.) of God’s love through all of you. It means more to us than we can say.

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