Praise God!

Elena's counts are on the rise!! Praise God!

Elena had a quick finger poke and check-up today.
Dr. B thought she looked great. She said she feels great too.
Her platelets were 40, her red count 10.2 and her ANC 550. A great improvement over an ANC of 0 and needing seven different blood and platelet transfusions while hospitalized. Please continue to pray that Elena will be ready to begin the maintenance phase of her treatment on April 26th. Her platelets need to rise to 75 and her ANC needs to be at 750 for that to happen.

Liv's wipe-out wounds are healing. She is still a little stiff and tender. Please pray for her healing and for her to be rested and ready to take the CRCT in the morning. It is a really big state test that all kids need to pass. She will be taking the test over the next three days. She's nervous. I am too.

Elena will take the test next week. She will have five days of testing. She is only nervous about the SS part of the test.

Thank you for staying with us. Thank you for praying for all things, big and small.

In Him,
The Tates
