Jesse had her weekly appointment yesterday. Her blood and marrow is making a recovery. Again, she did not need a blood transfusion, and they can tell from the sample of blood that she has started to make her own. Her white blood count went up as did her platelets. They have scheduled her broviac to be taken out on Oct 16th. Jesse was disappointed with the late date, but we reminder her that it WILL be coming out. I offered to remove it for her, but she declined. Hmm go figure :)
Jesse and I are off this weekend to Bison Ranch to a womens retreat for some much needed R&R with the ladies from church. We also went last year around this time, and did not know that Jesse had Leukemia. When we think back, we remember that she was tired that weekend with headaches. Little did we know her Red & white blood cells were so low, as were her platelets. A week later is when the year long journey began.
We are so thankful that Jesse is improving daily and able to feel somewhat normal again.
