Bone Marrow

Because of Olivia's frequent transfusions and low blood counts, they are going to do another bone marrow biopsy tomorrow. It sounds like this: If her leukemia cells have progressed, they will probably go ahead with a chemo treatment immediately. If not, regardless of her leukemia cell counts, they will probably start chemo as soon as she is healthy enough. It sounds like they will do the start here in Peoria during this admission. Anyway, we should know by the beginning of next week what exactly the plans are. Otherwise, a big day tomorrow. CT Scan in the morning and a bone marrow biopsy in the afternoon! Yippee.

Keep up the good work Olivia! You to Mom! You sound so positive! Our prayers are with you. I found a paper my 8 yr old daughter had wrote to you that said she is putting your family on the prayer list at church!
I'm so glad that you keep us informed. I'm sure it helps you to talk. Sooo glad you had a great time at the zoo and the movie. God Bless! Love-n-prayers, Angela, Emily & Rodney King
