Abby is worse today. Her overall blood work is worse than yesterday, and she is still at absolute zero immunity. The “R” word – relapse – continues to creep into the conversation. Relapse would be a devastating setback at this point.
On Monday, if her counts are not showing any improvement, they will most likely do a bone marrow aspiration to answer the relapse question… a question Michelle and I would rather know the answer to sooner rather than later.
Please pray with us that she has not relapsed. Relapse means we start over. Day one. As if she had never had chemo, except that she is weaker to begin with this time around. Apart from God's saving hand, Abby probably wouldn't survive another 2 years of this nightmare and that doesn't answer the question of whether or not we would want her to endure it again.
