70 mile commutes

Still in the hospital.  At least she is starting to decorate the room though.

The 70 mile oneway trip is getting a bit tiresome though.  Usually one of us goes down sometime in the late morning, hangs out, stays for any procedures (i.e. shots), and then the other person drives back home before rush hour.  We've been doing this for a week now, that's over 1000 miles this week.  It doesn't seem as long as it did the first couple of times but still I'd rather have Abby back at home.

Unfortunately her ANC is still low, actually lower now (down to 30 today).  We were hopeful that the ANC boost from the steroids last week would peak at 100 and we could leave before it dropped again but it didn't happen.  So, now we are planning for another week down in Denver.

Maybe she'll have a great immunity building night and wake up with an ANC of 100... but I'm not holding my breath right now.  Only time will tell.

So, more shots tomorrow and then again on Monday.  Wednesday is her bone marrow test and hopefully the results of that will be awesome.  We are praying and hoping that the chemo is working extra good (should be given her counts) and that the test results will show the cancer is gone (or at least under 1 in 10,000 cells).

Pray that she can come back home soon.  Obviously it would be so much nicer to do this all at home instead of as a commuting family.

Praying that the bone marrow test will come back awesome on Monday and her ANC score will gain amazing ground so Abby can go home with the family this weekend. Please know that you all don't leave our conscious thoughts and prayers. Love you

Praying healing over Abby in Jesus name! Abby, you are blessed & protected by the blood of the lamb of Jesus Christ. Sickness & disease (that's YOU cancer!) take this as your eviction notice! Abby and her parents ready to be home sp ANC levels, you better increase to an awesome high level! Father God, thank you for the protection, comfort, and blessings you continue to pour into the Schreiber family. Holy spirit, fill every encounter. We pray divine wisdom into the doctors & staff. Grace for each nurse. Peace to be an overflowing well from Abby`s soul each time anxiety tries to enter her spirit. Anxiety: you have NO authority in Abby`s life now or in her future. Jesus fought that fear already so move along!! Instead, peace will be the constant in Jesus name.

Amen!

Abby, when I was in labor having my son, I kept saying "NO pain in Jesus name, NO pain in Jesus name" as my mantra. Before your shots & during your shots, try repeating it too.
