Still in the Hospital

Lizzy is still in the hospital in Louisville.  Her ANC (blood count) went back down to zero today, plus her platelets dropped below the acceptable level, so she is getting a platelet transfusion today.  And we will continue to wait and pray and ask God for her counts to go up so she can come home.  As Lori has reminded me, the low blood counts are to be expected and indicate the chemo regimen is doing its job.

This week was an “off” week meaning no treatments were scheduled this week.  So, thankfully nothing has had to be postponed or rescheduled from a treatment standpoint.

Thank you for your continued prayers.  By the way, if you were to see Lizzy right now, you would have no idea anything is going on.  She is just as energetic and crazy as always.  In fact, she helped the hospital staff decorate the unit Christmas tree today.  Lori said she was telling the staff where all the decorations needed to be placed on the tree!!

Look at those arms swinging! She is Large and In Charge!!
