Weekly Labs start today...

As told afortime, Heaven begins her weekly regime for weekly labs. Dr. E said that they will kep a close watch on her counts for now...not sure how long that will be but I am thinking a couple months or more. Usually when her counts drop, it takes a little while for them rebound.
Please keep the prayers coming...her spirits are high and she is one happy young lady. Lov to you all and many blessings.
My cup still runneth over.....

Well, as of Friday.....

Heaven will be back on getting a CBC once a week. Dr.s still havent found out what may be suppressing her counts, but Lord willing thy will be making their way back to  normal range.
She has ben a little on edge these last few weeks but who wouldnt be...thats alot of pressure for a child to be under. Praise the Lord, she is gonna be ok.....thank you my sweet Jesus.
Keep those prayers, positive thoughts and encouraging words .coming. Love you all.

BMA done today

Heaven and I spent about 3 hours at the clinic all together today...we left home around 8:30 a.m this morning.
We still haven't gotten the chromosomes report back an we will be getting the test results back on Monday from todays BMA. Dr. E said today that he and the pathologist see that there is 4% leukemia blast but it also looked like the normal bone marrow was recovering and that Heaven is a mystery as to they still haven't figured out wht is supressing her platelets. She will be goig back to the clinic next week as to have another cbc done...and if her platelets haven't increased by then the week following thy will do another Bone Marrow Biopsy.
Through it all Gods been good. Just keep praying.

Hem/Onc Clinic visit

Here We will be leaving soon for Heaven to get more labs drawn and Dr. E wants to look at them himself to see if he sees any infections/virus. Also maybe by the time we get there the chromosome results will be back.
Keep praying for no relasp and good numbers.
Love you all.
We are here at the clinic now. We arrived around 12:30 pm and they put Heaven straight in a room beings there were 2 sick kuds that were gonna be coming in. We havent heard anything and they havent drawn labs as of yet.

God grace

Its amazing how He shows us that He is near when we think He's a million miles away.

Dentist visit

We will be heading out in a bit to take Heaven to the dentist to pick up her night guard and make sure it fits properly.
I will update later on when the Dr calls.
Blessings to you all.
Dr. E called while we were at the dentist. Basically, we still need the results for the chromosomes to get back and that we are still 50/50%. But he and the lab tech both agree about the blast with the normal markers and that they can change at any time...and he wants Heaven to be at the Clinic Thursday for more labs, 1) so he can look at the blood under a microscope to see if anything shows up that could bring her counts down and 2)if her counts havent come up much at all by Thursday they will be doing another bone marrow aspirate. One of the main concerns is why the counts are so low...and the other is if her body is trying to relasp, and Dr. E said to me again that if that is whats going on then we have caught it very early.

Mainly God be all the glory. Praises go to Him.

Here is the call I got from Dr. E

Ok here goes.....if it sounds confusing I understand.

Heaven has 14% blast on the bone marrow slide but more than not have normal markers so Doc isnt jumping on a relasp just yet because this could be her normal bone marrow recovering an if it is he doesnt want to destroy the recovery by giving chemo. She has 63% maturig white blood cells which is good and he informed me that if this is a relasp that we are catching really early.
Please pray for normal count numbers and no relasp.....Lord willing.

Waiting for the Dr. To call.....

It is 9:39 a.m and we havent heatd anything yet. Keep praying thr Lord Willing the report will come back clean.

Sad Sunday...

Found out yesterday that an elder in our church lost her battle with cancer and went home to be with the Lord. My heart was jolted as sometimes "it" comes so sudden.
Also tomorrow we will find out the news about Heaven. We are still praying for a clear report and also praying that it stays clear. Cancer stinks and I hate it and the devil can and needs to take it back to hell with him in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Heaven is still sore from the bone marrow aspirate but other than the soreness...she is still smiling.
Also a dear friend of ours lost his brother the other night, so I ask you say a prayer for them also.
Wayne said they had a gret service at churh this morning...I love my church family.
Hope you all have a wonderful evening...we are by basking in Jesus' wonderful Love.
Many blessings :-)

I'll pray for you,  you pray for me and together we'll touch heaven while on our knees...anything can happen in His name when we believe.

Loving the view that Jesus has blessed us with. Thats about the best thing about living here.

Hooked up

Heaven has been hooked to the monitors and her port has been accessed. We are now waiting for the Dr.s to come in. I will be staying with her as well...Lord I pray she walks through this fire untouched.

Leaving in a few minutes...

Getting ready to leave for Roanoke. My heart still feels like it could explode. Please pray that no leukemia cells/blast are found on the slide. Pray that all goes well today. Love you all and thank you so much for your prayers.

Made it to the clinic.....we will walk through this fire untouched...we will come out of this valley with Christ at our side. Love how children can smile through the toughest times. If you havent prayed is the time. Love you all.

Lovely Wednesday Sunset

My God is bigger than any problem I face and everything is possible when its covered by grace.

Beautiful foggy morning...

Woke to  nice cool, crisp morning today. Love it when God shows us beauty in a variety of ways...we just have to find them.
We will be leaving soon to go an get Heavens labs drawn again for the 2nd time in a week, so I am asking that everyone prays with us that her platelet counts come up an that the other counts stay where they are and that thy wont have to pull any bone marrow.
Thank you all who are standing with us in the need of prayer. My Christ Jesus bless you all.
Its amazing how in an instant your mind can be spinning, your thoughts unclear and your heart feeling like it could just explode.
Thats how I felt this morning when we received Heavens lab report and her platelets had dropped even more and her wbc and anc her also down.
Well...I am trying to hold it all in but the prayers just keep running down my cheeks.
Please pray for Heaven...still pray specifically...please.

Labs drawn.....platelets to low for surgery

Went to get labs drawn.....waited for the results.....
Heavens platelets are to liw for surgery, they are at 54 and Dr. Atkinson called me and asked if Heaven had a cold or anything, so at the time I told her no but after I hung up I remembered that Heavens sinus' had drained a little the other day, so I am now waiting for Dr. A to call back. Also the Dr. said she wants labs drawn again on Wednesday and if the platelets are still low that Heaven will need a Bone Marrow biopsy on make sure this monster isn't trying to show its ugly face again. Please pray spicifically.

Early morning.....

Getting ready to leave for Rocky Mount to take Heaven to get her labs drawn. Pray for safety, a good draw, & a good count. If counts are good...we will be at Roanoke Carilion at 5:15 a.m tomorrow morning for her surgery.Blessings to all <3

Beautiful day spent with my girls...

Each year my daughters and I get ready for a small day trip. Each year we go up to Meadows of Dan & the Blue Ridge Parkway.....First stop was Nancys Candy Factory and there we were told that Mount Airy was only about a 20 minute drive away.....well, this year we took a left turn instead of a right one. LoL. We decided that this year we should see a different place...and we did...we went to Mayberry (Mount Airy, NC). We actually went to Opies Candy Store...the girls bought an everlasting gobstopper. LoL. It was a beautiful ride there, gorgeous scenery, and lots of pumpkins. It was hard for us to get some pics due to the very thick mountain fog, but we did get a few. We were all so tired and Heaven slept all the way back to MOD. There we stopped in the Poor Farmers Market and purchased a few goodies.
Please continue to pray as Heaven has surgery Friday (10-5-12) and pray that all goes well. Blessings to all. <3
