Visit to Outpatient

Good Afternoon,

We are in outpatient, and Jesse is receiving her IVIG to boost her immune system. Her platelets are 44, but we did find out they are going to admit her at 50. We have an admission date of next Friday May 8th to start round 5.

This round should take a minimum of 30 days, and maybe a few more. We will be so relieved to finally be back home without another round looming over us.
Jesse had a great birthday!! She bought lots of clothes, and she even ate dinner at Ah-so. Jesse and Mckenzie shared a meal, Jesse ate the rice and vegetables, and Mckenzie had the salad and steak. We are expecting a great week at home. Jesse only takes 1 medication for nausea now instead of the 4 we use to rotate throughout the day. The daily meds seem to be a little more manageable now.

Happy Friday, have a great weekend.

Team Catron

Hi Catron's

Great to hear you had a fun Birthday Jesse. It was also great to hear about your final admission date next Friday for round 5. YeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeHaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I had to drag that out a bit Oregon style. I am going to be pulling for you even more through that last round that every last spec of that leukemia is gone from your body for good! That is my prayer and hope for you every night young lady, as I know it is for everyone else who has been following your journey. Round five I'm sure will not be easy, just like all the other rounds. Keep your focus on the end of these treatments, along with all the love and support of your family and the rest of the people following your blog who are scattered around the world. You'll make it through this and you're almost done!!

Say hi to everyone, and have a fantastic weekend!! Tell your Dad it's time to quit playing the "bad arm" card that I'm sure he's pulled out time and time again to get all his girls to do his work for him. Tell him his vacations over! Ha Ha.

Love from The Rieger's

Happy after Birthday blessings as well. I am sure you are loving the new clothes. Every lady loves new clothes for her birthday :)

Praying for your Round 5.

If you look at the significance of the number 5 in Gods word, it all relates back to Grace and blessing.

5 stones that David used to fight Goliath- I like that one the best.

That is my prayer for you. That you are able to fight this giant of a battle that you have had to go through and the courage and faith like David to carry you and the family through. I pray His love is lavished on you day in and day out, continually to prepare you for round 5.

Much Love and Blessings,

Hey one of my online friends raises money for Cancer and wanted me to pass on special good wishes and prayers!

I tried to round up Vin Diesal for your birthday but all I got was that silly Elvis Youtube greeting!

Can't wait until Round 5 is over. Love you loads and stay strong! Trust God as always!

"For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed,says the Lord that has mercy on you.". Isaiah 54:30

So glad to hear you had a wonderful birthday, Jesse, and that you are feeling better. We just need to keep trusting, praying, and thanking the Lord for His goodness and grace! I wake up in the night saying, "thank you, Lord, for what you have done for Jesse, and for what you are goinig to do. I just praise you." --And sometimes I talk loud enough Iwake Grandpa up!

All our love and prayers to all of the family. We think you are all pretty special.

Grandma and Grandpa
