Saturday morning before our night nurse left, she stopped in our room to share some news. Faith's ANC had skyrocketed to over 1300! Hallelujah! She hadn't registered a fever since Friday morning, so there didn't seem to be a reason to stay. Her platelets were fairly low, so they transfused her, but we were still discharged Saturday afternoon by 2pm. Faith was cleared to go to the concert and she was thrilled! I was cleared to enjoy my 40th birthday with my friends and my husband.
The light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer and brighter. Faith has 4 out-patient chemo treatments remaining. We hope that she will be done by the end of April. Her surgeon will clear her to bear weight shortly after chemo is completed and the bone has begun to grow again. For now, Faith has been cleared to sleep on her side, sit on the floor to pet Saki, and take a bath. What seems like little things are all big deals to her.
Thank you for all of your prayers and positive thoughts. They mean so much to our family and they really make a difference! Life is good!
