Mireya had a great appointment today. She did her Nurse Betty bit (took her own blood, prepared her labs and flushed her lines) but then tried to do a disappearing act when it came time to change her dressing. We managed to get through that without incident. Mireya continues to have favorable progress. All of her counts have increased. Her plates are almost 270k. Thank you Jesus. Her white and red counts are up and her magnesium level is showing a slight improvement. I believe as Mireya continues to take the magnesium via her line and orally we will see that number increase. We saw Allison in clinic today and her counts are fluctuating quite a bit, so please keep her in your prayers. We are believing for an increase in her white cell count. Mireya's medical team is very pleased with where she is and as a result we will only need to be seen in the clinic once a week going forward. I'm so excited. 57 more days until we hit the 100 Day Mark. We are trusting to reach this milestone with no issues or incidents.
Thank you so much for your continued prayers. God is so good and we're so grateful that Mireya is continuing to do so well.
Psalms 100 (KJV)
1Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. 2Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. 3Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 5For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
