Engrafting underway

Grateful to report that Talitha's first-of-three bone marrow transplants is working.

Her ANC began showing signs of life with a morning measurement of 300. This means her bone marrow is beginning to come back on line to re-establish the body's factories for blood cell & platelet manufacture as well as the body's shields against infection.

The doctors previously said they want to see two days of an ANC of at least 500 before releasing Talitha from her hospital room confinement. However, the word today was that if her numbers climb substantially in tomorrow morning's blood draw then they will release her. (Yay!)

Thank you for praying for Talitha!
