As you know, Elena has been having trouble maintaining stable counts since April. We were still having to have her counts checked weekly. After Elena's July 7th appointment, Dr. Lew said we could wait two weeks for counts this time. Well, Elena's counts yesterday were fantastic! Praise God! Her ANC was 2600!! I can't remember the last time it was that high! While Elena's counts look great, Dr. Lew did say he wasn't going to increase any of the medication yet. He doesn't want to move ahead to rapidly. So, Elena will continue on all necessary drugs, just at lower doses. Everything will be reevaluated at her next appointment, August 2nd.
We are all still loving these summer days. Squeezing in as much fun as we can these last few weeks. The girls have been playing with friends, having sleepovers, going to camp, and swimming.
Today, we are leaving to go camping for the weekend! The girls are SO very excited. I think the last time we went was summer of 2007. We will be at Tallulah Gorge State Park in the north Georgia mountains with our friends. We'll post pictures and news of our adventures next week.
Thank you for your continued prayers and love!
