Today was another good day! Elena's clinic visit went very well. We found out that the level of CMV in Elena's blood went down significantly! Praise God! They will check the level again on her next visit Monday morning. Please pray for Elena's blood to be negative for the virus at this time. We need two weeks of no virus before they will start reducing the anti-viral medication from twice a day to once a day, and then two more weeks without detection before they will stop the medicine altogether.
We also found out that Elena's counts are doing well with her white cells holding steady and her red cells and platelets going up slightly. This is encouraging because some of the medicine she is currently taking actually cause counts to drop, so having them go up is wonderful. Another big praise!
Elena spent the rest of the day planning fun activities for our family time this weekend! She is so excited about seeing Olivia and getting to hear all about her week. It is so nice to see her get excited about things again!
Please pray for continued healing and for a clear plan on when we can move Elena home!
Praying and believing!
