test results look great...

The doctor just called with all of Kaidan's results. Her bone marrowlooks good. It showed that her bone marrow is making red cells, white cells, and also showed that there were NO CANCER CELLS!!! Her metabolizing test came back as well, and it looked normal. She is not having trouble with the absorbtion of her chemo. That is good as well, except that we are still left wondering why her counts are having such a hard time recovering. Anyway...the doctor feels good about all of these results and thinks that most likely she has just continued to get viruses that are affecting her counts and her ability to bounce back is hindered because of the chemo. He wants to get her back up to 100% chemo as soon as possible, so we'll see what her blood shows next Wednesday when the nurse comes out to draw labs.

Kaidan is home from school again today. She had a scratchy throat this morning and she was very, very tired. I'm hoping it's just allergies because her throat looked fine and she seems to be doing better now after resting all morning.

I'll update again if anything changes, but hopefully you won't hear from us until next Wednesday. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers as we waited for all of these tests. We are truly humbled and grateful that we have receieved so much love and support. Thank you!
