Alleluia, Alleluia.....AL LE LU IA!!!!!!

We are singing here loud and proud!! The local doctor here finally got on the same page as the doctor in Minnesota. Last Thursday we went for Amelia to give blood for a CD4 test that needed to be above 100 in order for her to go back to school. Well we got the results on Monday and they were well over 200....so guess who went back to school on Thursday.......

This smiling beautiful girl!!! Also guess who tried out for the junior High Cheerleading team and made it....this beautiful smiling girl!!!


God is AWESOME!! hard to believe where she was just 10 short months ago.....

Busy, busy.....busy.....

Greeting Friends...
it's been a while since I have last updated. Things are still rolling right along. We have had lots of doctor visits over the last few days/weeks and a few to go, but they are NOT for Amelia and that is a great thing. We went Tuesday to the hematologist for Amelia.....We all could not be more pleased with her and how well she is doing. Her counts on Tuesday were WBC: 3.8, HGB: 13.2 and her platelets were 114. I have to call on Monday to get her IGg levels, praying that they are above 400! The issue of school also came up again and we asked, WHEN! Our local doctor said he wanted to give the docs in Minneapolis a call and get there thoughts on this too. He said since he wasn't the only doc taking care of her he wanted to see what they thought. I pray that I here from them before our next appointment which is on April 10th, she really needs to be back in school around kids her own age and her friends. Please say a little prayer that she will make it back there before the end of this month!!!! Here is a picture of her hair, it is growing back so nicely and when she lets me fix it, it is really REALLY cute!


The other doctors that we have been visiting are for Marshall and Ty. Marshall went and had more cell's remove from a precancerous mole about two weeks ago. Tuesday we go back to have the stitches removed. He also needs to see the eye doctor on Friday and then IVIG the following Tuesday and then the Tuesday after that he will be going to a GI doctor to check on his gallbladder and acid reflux. They think more than likely he will need his gallbladder taken out. I know that it is usually a quick and easy procedure now a days, but if he needs it out I think I will wait till the summer when he is out of school and I have more time on my hands....
Ty also had eye surgery on Thursday, he had a lazy eye that was getting worse and making it harder for him to see. So Thursday they went in and tightened the one muscle and on the other side they had to loosen the muscle. Lets just say he is not a happy camper. He is hurting and the eyes are burning and feel like they have tons of sand in there. I have a few pictures, they aren't the best because I couldn't get his eyes to open anymore than they are with out them causing him a lot of pain

Here it is before the surgery, this picture is not as bad as it really was.






So that is what we have been up too around here. Hope to be back soon with more to update on!
Blessings and thanks for checking in on us and thanks for keeping us all in your prayers!
