Return and report

Thank you for your prayers and encouragement.

Talitha started off her day with a trip to the PCMC in Salt Lake for a non-sedated hearing test at 8am. The results of the hearing exam have them concerned enough about Tali's high-pitch/frequency sound registry that they are ordering a more thorough sedated hearing test for when she’s in the hospital next week for her follow-up MRI. 

After the hearing test, Tali had a checkup at the BMT/Oncology clinic. Her ANC has climbed only slightly to 800 but the rest of her blood counts are looking good.

She gained more weight from 11.3 to 11.5 kilos (25.3 lbs.) Yay!

The final test for the day is the one we're holding our breath about: the sedated spinal tap/lumbar puncture.

We won't know the results from the lab for several days but are hoping for the best.

We're thinking positive.


  1. This sweetie and her family are in our prayers daily! She's so brave, as are the ones who love her dearly. Please let us all know how she is doing and the test results. I am thinking positive, too! Love you guys so much!

  2. We love you too, Sharon. Thank you!
