The surgery did not take place until 5:30. The neurosurgeons wanted Hannah's platelets to be over 100. Therefor Hannah had to receive a platelet infusion. Hannah made it through her surgery with no problems. The first thing she said when she awoke form the sedation was 'daddy' but she wanted mommy to hold her! I was happy that Jon came to visit us yesterday and to be with us when we received the MRI results, who knew she would have to have a surgery too! Hannah had another CT scan this morning to make sure the new 'chemotherapy reservoir' was in the proper place and to make sure her brain was well. The results said everything is how it needs to be. There is still a little inflammation on the right side of her brain where the reservoir went into the ventricular but it should go away in due time.

Hannah's tumor FREE! Hannah's tumor FREE!

Hannah's ANC is up to 2450! It usually goes up before it goes down after her chemotherapy. Hannah's platelets are up to 202 after having the platelet infusion yesterday! Everything is looking good for Hannah to get to go home on Monday as long as her potassium goes up. It is staying really low even with all the potassium she is receiving in her IV fluids. All else fells she may have to go back onto the TPN but for a shorter amount of time. We will just have to see what the weekend has in store.

Please pray that Hannah's ANC stays elevated and that her Potassium elevates up to the normal range. Also, please pray that Hannah's new reservoir works with no problems from here on out.

"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Mark 11:24

Keep the Faith!
