Today was a day of celebrating good news here in Rm #3206. First of all, the results from Elena's bone marrow test came back negative for any residual disease! Praise God! This is exactly what we were praying for! Please continue to pray for the remaining test results to be as favorable as these.
Second, Elena has had another fever free day and was able to enjoy more fun activities this afternoon! She was even able to do her laps and take a bath while unhooked from her IV pole. The doctors are backing off on her "food" and fluids to allow her appetite to increase, which gives her about two hours of freedom a day. As Elena begins to eat and drink more she will need less and less through her IV until she is free of the pole for good.
Lastly, we are encouraged because Elena was able to eat more tonight than she has in almost two months. While she still struggles in this area to find things she "likes", and has only eaten about 1/4 of her normal amounts, we know that she is willing to keep trying and do whatever it takes to get better.
Please pray for continued progress, for fever free days, and for complete and total healing for Elena!
Still praying and believing!
