Feeling Groovy

Hello Everyone,

We have super news, Jesse feels GREAT!!! Yesterday we played games, watched movies, and she was not nauseated at all. She also had 3 grapes!! Today is just as good, she has had half of a yogurt. She is done with round 4 chemo. The next round is 2 days of chemo, 5 days without, and 2 more days of chemo. Her ANC is still high, 3500. We need that to get to 0 ASAP so she can start the climb back up, then back home :) The cytarabine (chemo) has started a rash, and her skin is turning brown again (not a bad side affect) The palms of her hands and feet are turning red, which is what happened last round before her skin peeled off. That was not painful, just weird.

Thank you for your continued prayer,
Love, Team Catron

Woo hoo, good (no GREAT) to hear. Hope the rest of the day and week are equally as good! Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel must feel good!

Love from Oregon,
Mark, Toni, Trevor and Austin

What a pleasant and unexpected surprise! I truly believe it was from the Lord.

Praying still that it stays this way at least for tomorrow & until your counts 0 out. I suppose you want your counts to zero out quickly though, prayin' for that too!!

Jesse you don't know how excited I was to read this!! I was thinking "Finally, some really great news, thank you God!"

Grandma and Grandpa said...

We are so excited, and so thrilled for you, Jesse. I immediately called Aunt M. and Unc, and we are rejoicing together.

"Faithful is He that called you, who will also do it."
1Thessalonians 5:24 "But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil." 2Thessalonians 3:3
"You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God and I will exalt you. Oh give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good: His mercy endures forever!" Psalms 118:28,29.

There doesn't seem to be any thing to add. We will continue to praise Him and intercede for all the Catrons; that God be merciful and gracious, and bless you all with healing and health, physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Oh praise the Lord!

We love you more and more abundantly,

Oh... I am so grateful to the Lord to hear that you are having better days. I can't wait to hear you are eating a full meal!

Todd is so bummed out that he got sick today. He was looking forward to seeing you and praying for you (he is still praying for you and so am I).

Let's hope and pray that each day gets better and better!

We love you Catrons!
