ANC 80

Good Morning,
Jesse's ANC is moving on up today she has climbed to 80. Just 170 more and we are out of here. Here pain level is only a 3, so we have opted to take her off the pain med, which could be the cause of the nausea. She only threw up one time yesterday, at about 10:00 am. I am hoping by tomorrow to start her on the jello and broth again. We are loving the private room, lots of room, and I think the bathroom is as large as one of the shared rooms. We are very thankful to be in here for the last leg of round 4.
We finally let Dakota brave the Phoenix freeways. Sunday she drove to the hospital, and Monday morning drove home. Her tire was a little low, but she made it to the gas station, only to find out that "another 10 miles and it would have blown" we are thankful she made it home, and the tire is now repaired.

Jesse is scheduled for an echo and ekg today because of the chest pain. The Dr also said, they need an update anyways, to compare the numbers from the begining of this round. For the rest of the day we are going to hang out, play some scrabble, watch a movie, and start her class Travel and Tourism. Jesse just has 3 classes to go, and she will graduate. The ceremony will not be until fall, so she should be able to attend.

Thank you for taking the time to read out Jesse's journey.
Love Team Catron

Good news for sure! Hope you have an enjoyable day and all the tests come back with good results. Hope you are home for Easter!

I LOVED the joke from anonymous about the little boy in church worried about which service the people died in!!! Too funny.

Way to go Dakota, I bet if you can drive on those freeways you can drive anywhere!

Enjoy your big private room!

"Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good: sing praises unto his name, for it is pleasant." "For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods." Psalms 135:3,5.

We are rejoicing with you all! Jesse, we are SO thankful that you are not in so much pain! And it sounds like your ANC is coming up quite nicely. Praise the Lord!

We are so very, very proud of you. I don't know how to put words together properly, to describe how very proud we are, and how humble we feel that you are our granddaughter! (The same applies for ALL of the family, but you have center stage right now.) We are so proud that you keep fighting and trying, instead of giving up. So proud that you have some how managed to keep up with your school work. You are a champion!! --And you look so cool holding that snake. That was a fun day, wasn't it?---

We have had cold weather, wind, sunshine, clouds, and snowflakes flying all day. We were suppose to have 4 inches of snow, but we didn't. I think it blew to West Virginia. We just had snow flakes floating around all day.

We love you all and send hugs and smiles, praise and prayer.
