Day 15 of Recovery

Good Morning!
Although Jess's ANC is still at 0, all of her basic metabolic areas are starting to go up. Since her platelets are very low their plan today is to give her a lot of them. She will also be getting a blood transfusion.
Her night last night was pretty much the same as all the other ones. She went to the bathroom countless times and only threw up once.
After shes done with her makeup we going to shave Jess's head. Hopefully when the patchiness is gone she will feel a lot better about herself because she had a big meltdown this morning.
Please be praying for Jess so that even through this time she will notice how beautiful and strong she is.
Thank you all for your support!
Much Love,

There is a lot on the internet about hair loss due to chemo - I'm sure you all have read about it. Definitely one of the biggest worries for people when they face chemo - the loss of hair, and self image takes a big hit. I guess it doesn't help that everyone would tell Jesse that her self image has GROWN in all of our eyes - we haven't met you, Jesse, and you are a hero in our house. All the internet sites say it is temporary, and the fun will be when it does grow back in to see if you have a new color or texture . . . and that can be temporary as your hair cells recover. Other than one person we won't name, seems the Catrons have a gift of beautiful hair, so bets are high that Jesse's hair will be back and beautiful very soon!

Love from the Suazo House

"For the Lord is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusts in you." Psalms 84:11,12

Jesse Darling, it isn't the outward appearance that makes a person beautiful--it comes from the heart and shines out, and your heart is beautiful! The beauty of the Lord gives you a special glowing beauty. With or without hair,all four of you girls are drop-dead gorgeous, because of Jesus in you.

And thank God for wigs!

I can empathize with your feelings, and certainly would not make light of them.
Your hair will grow out and be beautiful. I remember when Aunt Merna's came out, and how very horrified she was!--And you didn't find wigs on every other street corner, like today. Her hair grew out, and it did not take a long time. (Just between you and me, I take gelatine tablets every day to encourage my hair to stay strong. Just because a person has lots of nice hair when they are young, doesn't mean they will when they get old!)--Thank you, Lisa, for your comments. They are wonderful.

I understand you are going to have Aunt and Uncle with you tonight. That should be fun!

We love you dearly, and we are praying for you and all of the family. I trust everyone will be well soon. Praying that ANC goes up, up, up soon, and you can get home!

Grandma and Grandpa

Hey Jesse!

I haven't written in a LONG time! Wow. You are almost there. Do Not give up now! lol. If God has gotten you THIS far then obviously there is a reason! I'm sorry you melted this is hot outside. lol. just kidding!! I can see how losing your hair and such is a heavy burden, but I don't think I'll ever come to understand how you feel. All we can do is pray, pray, pray. It's gotten us this far hasn't it? =D So KEEP the faith Jess!!!
