Thanks for praying for Ellie's bone marrows yesterday! It went well, and though Ellie had some pain when she first woke up, she hasn't complained of any since. She has been her same perky little self. We took her to Cracker Barrel as a special treat for all of the hard work she's done eating this week. She hasn't reached 50 pounds yet, but there was nothing she could have done any better to reach the goal...which tells us that we were reaching a little too far to make it to 50. She is close, and may get there yet.
As of today the results of the bone marrows are not in. We should know by tomorrow. Her blood work came back on the low side of normal, so rather than start chemo in the next two days, Ellie's doctor would like to re-check her blood on Friday. We are pleased about that, as we would have been a little nervous to see her go back for more chemo with the counts where they are. So...she has a few more days to EAT!!
I just wanted you to know what the latest is - I'll let you know when we get the bone marrow results in. Thanks to all for your love and prayers!
