Things Work Out

Talitha playing dress-up

"It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don't worry. I say that to myself every morning. It will all work out. If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. ... If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers." ~Gordon B. Hinckley
Talitha's white blood count is all the way back down to 200 with the ANC (absolute neutrophil count) at zero. Her platelets have dropped dangerously low and therefore the doctors have asked that we bring her in tomorrow morning for a platelet transfusion.

The mouth is still holding strong with enough drinking and eating still happening and there have been no fevers. (Thank you for your prayers!)

We are giving her double doses of neupogen in the daily shots in her leg to over stimulate the blood count recovery in order to prepare for an abundant harvest of stem cells.

Much to be grateful for even while in the storm.
