Great Clinic Visit

Good Afternoon! Just wanted to let you know that Elena had a great visit at the clinic today. Our prayers were answered. Everything went well. Praise God! Elena's counts were good and we do not have to go back for a month. Really! A whole month! It's actually beginning to feel like we are truly in the maintenance portion of Elena's treatment!

Here are some pictures from today's visit:

Elena's fabulous sedation nurses!

Port accessed...waiting...bored....

Elena still sleeping after her lumbar puncture.

Didn't we say her nurses were fabulous!

After Elena's outpatient visit at the clinic,
we walked over to the hospital
to see some of our favorite inpatient nurses.
Here are Deia and Stephanie.

Just a small glimpse of our morning. A great bonus to our week is that Gram and Grandpa are here visiting! The girls are thrilled! It is a great annual tradition to have them here for the last week of summer vacation. A plus for us since, I have to go back to work before the girls and they still get to enjoy more summer fun with Gram and Grandpa. We are so very thankful to everyone in our lives who continue to care for us and pray for us. Some are pictured above, some are miles and miles away. We are grateful to all!

In Him,
The Tates
