We have received the results of Elena's blood test from yesterday. All of her individual counts were good: Plateletes at 167,000 and red cells at 9.7; both much higher than the limits needed for transfusions. Her ANC however, or the combination of all counts, which needs to be at 750 to continue treatment, was only at 410. This is not a bad thing, and there is nothing that needs to be done other than letting Elena's body rest and recover from the intense treatment she has just finished. Her doctor said we will try to get her started sometime later next week like Wednesday or Thursday, instead of Monday as scheduled. Please pray for Elena's physical healing as she deals with the nagging pains in her back and hip. Please also pray for full restoration and rejuvination as we prepare to move forward.
As always, thank you for your prayers and your support. We are blessed to have such a wonderful and steadfast team of prayer warriors.
In His name,
"Always be joyful and never stop praying. Whatever happens, keep thanking God because of Jesus Christ. This is what God wants you to do." 1 Th 5:16-18
