Normal bone marrow !!!

Hi to all of Jesse's friends and family,

Today is definitely a day to rejoice. Her bone marrow results have come back at 4% blasts. Anything at 5% or less is considered normal. The "blasts" are most likely baby bonemarrow. However, we will have to check and make sure that those will be reviewed further to make sure none of them are Leukemia. Well...Jesse is not considered normal but that is still great news. We are now waiting for Infection Disease Control to see if they will lift the quarantine so she can run free through the halls and go to the cafeteria for chow. There isn't much to do while we wait for the Access insurance to kick in. Just mess with each other and tell stories. We can go home when the insurance coverage starts.

Jesse has an appetite now which is cool. She will be off of TPN now so all of the nutrition she gets will have to come from her eating and drinking. Spending time with her it great. I have been working marathon hours and days and have little time to spend with her...or the rest of the girls. The hard part is over now and when Jesse comes home there will be a little more normality to our lives.

Thanks to everyone for writing into Jesse and following her story. She is smiling now and getting back to her funny little personality. Her hair is coming back in fast and thick. My baby is getting well. I can't tell everyone just how that makes me feel. The words just can't cover it.

Have a great day and thanks again for the thoughts and prayers

We are so happy for you, Jesse, and for your whole family and circle of friends (which includes us!) because we are breathing easier and feeling so glad that the news is good, you're starting to feel better, and able to eat! Eating is good! Now let's get Access kicked in and get you home - it's a wonder they can't just get that done right now but I guess if patience is a virtue, then you are all extremely virtuous.

Much love and continuing prayers from the Suazo House!
