Rockin' the Recovery!

Abby and I went to the clinic for her Monday appointment today. On Mondays they draw labs, check her medicine blood levels, her blood counts, and just see how she is doing overall.

Today she was doing great. Her ANC is actually 4736! Her red blood cells are up in the higher than they've been for ever, and her platelets are officially engrafted too. It's only day 33 and she is recovering in record time so far.

They also had her disease results from last weeks bone marrow test, right now she still is disease/cancer free with an MRD of zero. The preliminary blood chimerism test is also great, all of Anna's cells so far. By Thursday we should have the bone marrow chimerism test results and we are hoping and praying to see 95% of the cells be Anna's cells. Basically she is rocking her recovery so far.


In the clinic she decided to play a prank on her Nana and put one of the stuffed animal owls (that is on loan from her Nana) in a biohazard and then brought it back to her Nana in the apartment. She thought it was pretty funny. When she finally got settled back in her room she said, "I think I'm finally starting to feel like myself again!" The picture below does show that her silly side is back in force!
Have a great day!

There I sat in the ASIJ elementary teacher's lounge reading your blog with tears running down my face! I can only imagine how good it was to hear Abby say she is beginning to feel like herself. Praising the Lord with you for his faithfulness!

Hi Abby! It's mrs Torrez!!! I can't figure out how to leave comments, so I'm sorry if this is a repeat message. :-) I wanted to let you know that you have been on my heart a lot lately. I didn't even know that you were sick again! I contacted a friend from the school yesterday to ask how you guys were doing in Japan. It was only then that I found out that you were back here for treatment. I want to let you know that my family and I will be praying for you. I loved having you as a student and you are very special to me. :-) I still have the owl no cards that you gave me as a gift… And I am always reminded of your love of the guardians of Ga'Hoole as a read them with my boys. I hope you are getting my messages… I want you to know that I am thinking about you. Mark and Tiffany, I have very much enjoyed your blogs. Hang in there. You have a lot of people pulling for you and praying for your family.
