Elena is resting after a very rough night of unrest. Her red cell counts are good after receiving two units of blood but her platelets were about the same as when we first arrived at the clinic yesterday morning. This is causing us some concern as she had received two units of platelets before these counts were done and will now receive a third. Her nose has continued to bleed and she has also vomited more blood. Pray that we will find out what is causing this and that the doctors can correct the problem.
Please also keep our family in your prayers as we are spread thin, often with our hearts and minds in one place and our bodies in another. Pray for Olivia as she deals with the emotional roller coaster we are all riding and with trying to balance the normalcy of life that this time of year brings with the reality we now find ourselves living in.
Thank you for all of the prayers!! We defnitely feel the hands of Jesus reaching out to us!
