We just heard from the clinic and Elena's counts are good to go! Her ANC more than doubled from 410 to 890 and her other counts were all still above where they need to be so we are all set for the next 28 day cycle. We praise God for His healing and restoration powers and are excited that Elena's body has recovered enough to continue. This will be one of the most intense rounds of treatment for Elena, however, and we pray for her strength and stamina to continue to improve. She will have clinic visits on the first four Mondays of November and will be sedated on the first two. She will have shots in her legs three nights a week for the first two weeks and will start a new oral medication during that time as well.
It is so good to see Elena respond so quickly when her counts drop. We do notice improvement in her physical and mental health during these "rest" times and we thank all of you who pray for her healing. God is so Good!!
