Today's results are in.......well almost!

This morning around 4 am after Hannah's morning lab draw we were informed that her potassium levels were really low and she had to receive a potassium infusion early this morning.

Hannah had her morning CT scan of her head and then we were waiting for the doctor to make rounds. I asked the doctor if Hannah's brain bled due to low platelets could there be a bleed somewhere else. There is a chance that this could happen so Hannah went back down for a CT scan of her chest, abdomen, and pelvic area.

We finally received the results. Hannah's head CT showed know new change. This is good; NO change means the bleeding has stopped! The brain should absorb the blood spot in her head within approximately the next 14 days. In two weeks Hannah will have another CT scan of her head. The results of the chest, abdomen, and pelvic CT showed nothing except healthy organs!


Hannah's heart rate has been high. It has been staying around the 190's and 200, due to her high fevers. Since this heart rate is really really high Hannah had an echocaridiogram (ultra sound of the heart) done today.
We are still waiting on these results.

Hannah received her neupogen shot, her two doses of her seizure medicine (only five more days of seizure medicine), and the doctor took Hannah off of one of her antibiotics and put her on two new antibiotics. We are trying two different antibiotics in hope that it will help Hannah's fever to go away. She is still running a continues temperature.

Her ANC is still low at 16.9 but her platelets are 210! This is the highest her platelets have been in over a week. We now have to make sure that her platelets stay up so she does not get any new crazy bleeds! Hannah's mouth sores are better but they still look really bad.

A BIG thank you goes out to everyone who has been praying so hard for our Hannah. Thank you for taking time out of your day to say a prayer for her and checking out her website. We really enjoyed all the guest book entries. The entries help us keep our spirits up and we appreciate them.

We are praying for a complete and totally healing of Hannah's body. We are believing that Hannah's brain bleed will vanish and her mouth sores will disappear, that her heart will be healthy, her counts to increase and stay within the normal limits, and NO MORE FEVER! We are proclaiming total restoration of Hannah's body.

She will SURVIVE!

Keep the Faith!
