Abby, Sami and I had a wonderful day. They opened care packages, ate yummy homemade cookies, played with friends and did crafts. Abby and Sami turned a day stuck in a hospital into a day filled with fun. I love those silly girls.
Abby's WBC are increasing. The number that tells us how good her immune system is working (ANC) has risen from zero on Tuesday, to 748 on Wednesday to 848 today. The goal is for it to be several thousand, while she has this infection. After Abby is healed from this wound infection, they will bring her ANC back down to 1200-1500. Abby's cancer mimics WBC, so by keeping her WBS low they they hope her in remission.
Abby's wound in looking much better. It is big and deep, so it will take time to heal, but we are very happy with the progress it is making.
Thanks again for all of your prayers. Saturday will be three weeks in the hospital and we are understandably tired. We long to have our family together again.
Open Season Friday
Open Season Friday's are when you ask us anything you want, and we post up several answers today and over the weekend.
How many we answer really depends on how lengthy some of the answers are, and of course, what is going on with Abby.
The list of questions will tag along with THE NEWEST ANSWER, so that new questions can be added, and existing questions can be viewed.
Ask your question using the form below. Obviously we won't be able to answer all questions... we'll just randomly answer whatever grabs us. We'll call each post "Answer 1", "Answer 2" so that you'll know how many have been posted. Sometimes we answer several questions in one post.
Don't be bashful, ask anything you want... questions about:
- our family, our life, adoption, cancer, parenting, marriage, marriage, family
- blogging, photography, technology
- marketing, personal finance
- the Bible
- what we do professionally...
- ask for advice
- WHATEVER.... hey, it's OPEN SEASON!!
