Dr. Smith called today and told Tiffany that Abby's bone marrow tests were very good, under 5% cancer so she is classified as a rapid responder! I'm glad for her that she doesn't have to keep this agressive chemo up too much longer, it's got to be hard on her, she just hasn't been herself.
But, in 2 weeks, on her birthday, she will have her final treatment of this induction phase. At that time she will have anther lumbar puncture (spinal tap and chemo), a bone marrow test again, and another round of chemo. What we want to see from that test is no signs of leukemic cells, that would mean she is in remission and that would be a great 3rd birthday present indeed!
Until then, keep her in your prayers, especially while she is so nutropenic, under 500 ANC, and at such high risk of infection.
Thanks you to everyone that is reading this, thanks for being part of this wild, often stressful but always rewarding journey!
Praise God! He is SOOOOOOO Good!

HE GIVES POWER TO THOSE WHO ARE TIRED AND WORN OUT; HE OFFERS STRENGTH TO THE WEAK. EVEN YOUTHS WILL BECOME EXHAUSTED, AND YOUNG MEN WILL GIVE UP. BUT THOSE WHO WAIT ON THE LORD WILL FIND NEW STRENGTH. THEY WILL FLY HIGH ON WINGS LIKE EAGLES. THEY WILL RUN AND NOT GROW WEARY. THEY WILL WALK AND NOT FAINT. ISAIAH 40:29-31
WE LOVE YOU MARK,TIFF,ABBY AND ANNA
I just want you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts. I have struggled through the cancer battle with several close family members, and it is such a long, hard road - but it CAN have a happy ending. I would imagine it is infinitely harder when it is your child.
I will be thinking of you all and hoping for the very best.
You guys don't know me, but I'm praying hard for Abby and the whole family. I pray God holds her in His hands, surrounds you all with His peace, and brings healing to her body.
Rest in Him... You'll be in my constant prayers.
We are praising God for Abby's test results! And we will continue to pray for her remission and protection from infections. Thank you for continuing to post updates-- and sending Snapfish pics. It always brings a smile to us when we see you and your girls. We pray that God will bless you with peace as you experience all the ups & downs of this battle.
We love you and miss you very much!
Mark & Krista
