Yesterday her ANC was 10, yes a big whopping 10! A far cry away from 200. Although it is slowly on the rise. This morning it was 13.31. I'll take it in hopes it will just continue to increase.
With all the fevers and the throwing up the doctors thought yesterday she could be getting pneumonia or an infection in her lungs. Hannah had a chest x-ray and the results were good. Her lungs are clear and look fine. The doctors also started her on another antibiotic yesterday. Now she is on two antibiotics.
We were also informed that Hannah has a "spot/abnormal looking area" on her L1 bone in her spine!
(Okay, why would you tell me she is tumor free if there is something unknown in her spine where the tumor was? Can you make a mom (and Jon too) freak out or what!)
The doctors think it maybe an infection or something caused from her radiation; but they a really unsure. The MRI she had on Wednesday 10/29 showed "something" IN the bone but was not clear enough to decipher what it was. Therefor Hannah is having a bone scan today at 11am!
We will not have results from the bone scan until tomorrow! Also, Hannah's platelets are low today and she will have to receive a platelet infusion after her bone scan and she was restarted on the TPN and lipids last night for extra nutrition!
Please pray with us and believe that this is merely nothing and that Hannah will be okay! That her fever will leave her body and she will be healthy and strong.
"Have faith in God," Jesus answered. "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.
(What you say will make a difference.)
"Therefor I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
(Believe, and you will receive.)
Keep the Faith!
