Yesterday and Today have been wonderful days!

Yesterday, Wednesday,
We had Hannah's radiation treatment in the morning and then we came back to the apartment for a nap. At 1:00 Hannah had physical therapy at the hospital. She did very well. Hannah is trying to pull her self up into the standing position. She needs help with her legs, especially her right leg, but the will power is there and she is trying hard. She can now push her self up to the sitting position when she is laying down. (The braces on Hannah's feet in the picture are so she does not get drop foot. Since she is not walking her feet are wanting to point down.) Hannah is getting stronger each and every day.

Today, Thursday,
Hannah had radiation this morning and then off to the hospital for Hannah's lab draw and her weekly chemotherapy. Hannah's ANC was 2,480 today! Her lab values are looking really good. Hannah did not go to her physical therapy today. The chemotherapy and radiation together really makes her tired. She has been napping all afternoon.

Also, the past two days Hannah has been eating food and keeping it down! She is drinking milk, apple juice, eating spaghetti, home made chicken pot pie and pizza. None of it has came up and we are very thankful for that!

I found this saying and thought I would share it with you.

If we are going through difficult situations that are not caused by our own disobedience or neglect, we can know that God has allowed these trials in order to work a greater purpose in us. They will test our faith, patience, and love. And the way to get through them successfully is to stand strong by praising God in the midst of whatever is going on.

Please stay strong and believe with us for a complete and total healing of Hannah's body.
