Sorry for the delay in updating..... :-)

Update on Heaven Nicole.....I'm going to try and get this update in, in a nutshell. The last few weeks heaven has been doing very good, counts are where they need to be, up and walking, clear lungs,....this past Sunday (wee hours of the morning like at 2 a.m Monday) she spiked a 102 fever then it went away...later Monday afternoon around 3 p.m. spiked a 102 fever then it went away. So far today she has had a fever of 103, 102, and 103.8.....we found out today through some test taken yesterday why the fevers are coming in so late. The beginning of last week her throat was really dry, so myself, Heaven and even the Dr.s and Nurses were saying it was due to the dryness int he rooms and on the unit. Well then she was due for her monthly dose of Pentamadine (sp?) which is to keep her from getting PCP (pneaumasistic carni pneaumonia) and with that she first had to inhale Albuteral. Then it happened.....not sure if the virus had just been lingering for a week or so but she now has RSV, her lungs are still sounding great even with her dealing with this, so, with all that said...there is really nothing that can be done except to keep a close eye on her and let it run its course, which will be between 2 to 3 weeks. Dr. Driscoll is going to talk with the team about still doing the bone marrow biopsy but maybe put it off until sometime next week. At this point we would appreciate your prayers for a quick and full recovery from this so we can move on to the next stage.
Those specific prayers are working so keep them coming. Blessings to you all and I would also like for everyone to please pray for our oldest daughter Alexandra as she is having a very emotional day due to some unforseen circumstances. Thank you all for the love and compassion that you all continually share.....will update later. <3
