Day of Blessing


Good Morning, As most of you know, we have been waiting for this day to have Jesse's blood drawn and check her white blood cells. We get this done every week, but the last 4 weeks, her counts have been very low, which means her bone marrow is not being made. We waited patiently for the blood count to come back, and Dr Boklan was nothing but smiles as she delivered the news. Jesse's White blood cell count is up from 1.0 to 1.7. This is not in the normal range of 4.0 - 12.0, but it is an upward trend. Her red blood cell count held at 12.0 which means no blood transfusion. This is the first time we have gone in, and she did not need blood. She has been scheduled to have the broviac removed early October, as long as next Wednesday everything still looks good. Jesse is so excited, she was grinning ear to ear.

We do have an appointment tomorrow morning with the cardiologist. She will have an echo and EKG to check the strength of her heart. We are praying for equally great news.

Thank you everyone for your prayers for Jesse and our family through this difficult year. We are so thankful for the peace that passes understanding. It has been such a blessing to feel calmness even though we have faced such devastating news week after week for almost an entire year. We have refreshed hope and a shiny new tomorrow.

Much Love,

Team Catron

We woke this morning literally thinking of Jesse and hoping for good news! This is wonderful beyond words! We are thankful you share the great report of today, and we'll just keep the prayers going for an equally or better report tomorrow.

You are a very special family, and we understand how you do need peace and calm and news like this brings that. Our children mean everything to us.

Much love from the Suazo house

Jesse it's great to hear good news for you. I am praising the Lord with you. I saw you at church today and you looked absolutely gorgeous. You have walked and walked during this trial but I know you didn't lose heart or give up on God. That is something to say. You are a walking miracle that Jesus loves - and you are a testimony to other of the love, strength, and hope in Christ. Go Jesse! Praying for more good news from here on out!
