Just thought I would give a quick little update and some pictures so you can see how well Miss Amelia is doing!!! We had clinic on Tuesday and things are still doing great. Her counts still continue to go up, we didn't get all of them or a definite figure, we will get the print out again next Tuesday. We were in the middle of dressing change, which is always stressful, but thankful we have it down to once a week with the new dressings that they have here at home! If they would have had these in Minneapolis we so would have done them!! But anyway back to the counts, the doctor popped his head into the door and said guess whose counts are above 100 thousand? So we were happy to hear that her counts are above 100!!!
She unfortunately got poison ivy from Nathan. Nathan got it about 2 weeks ago went to the doctor and got a shot and some medicine for it...his cleared up quickly, but Amelia's is taking it's time getting better. I guess that is just her slow immune system.
She is also off all of her fluids. The only thing she is getting through her line is her caspofungin. Knock on wood we are praying that pesky bladder thing is gone for good!!

Here are a few pictures:
This one is from right before transplant at this time her hemaglobin was about 5, becasue by the time we got to Minneapolis her HGB was down to 4.7!!

The one below is of her just about two weeks ago! Her hair is coming in so thick and fast! Also notice the beautiful pink lips! The picture above she was so pale. She looks so healthy today!

Here are a few from what we did this past weekend!

She found this Giraffe and we had to stop!

Nate was in his glory on the USS Alabama...

Mimi was

Thanks again for all the prayers they are appreciated!!

Blessings to all,

Thank you!!

Thank you, Thank you....Thank. You.
Her chest x-ray was clear, I'm going to keep praying that it is just muscular!! She got her flu shot. Her counts are awesome!! Platelets 97!!! White blood is 4.4 and hemoglobin is 10.7!! She is looking great and feeling great. I won't breathe easy until I am 100% sure her shoulder is muscular!! But for now we will take it!
Blessings All!

Prayers please!!

We are on our way to a regular clinic appointment at our local clinic. I am a little worried. Please say a prayer for Amelia today!! She has a little bit of a cough, which started a few days ago. Last night she came and told me that her shoulder was hurting really bad. My stomach was immediate knots. Please pray she does not have pneumonia or anything worse, please! I've been praying all night. She has been doing so awesome. I packed some clothes just in case. I hope I don't need them!! I'll keep you posted.
