We found out today that all of Elena's counts were good except for her ANC. :-( It actually went down from 560 to 160 and needs to be above 750 for her to start maintenance. This means that she will get another week to heal and we will try again next Thursday. Her doctor has temporarily stopped her from taking the antibiotic that she is on to help prevent pneumonia. He said that this suppresses the ANC at times and wants to see if this will help raise it to where it needs to be. Please pray for good health during this time as Elena is at a greater risk of infection the lower her counts are.
Please also pray for patience and understanding for us all as we continue to move forward with the plans that God has for our lives. He has not been wrong yet!!
