But those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

Monthly Appt :(
Jesse had her monthly appointment today. For the most part all is good, she does not have Leukemia..YEA!! But, because of the 100 or so blood transfusions she has received, they have built up Iron in her body. Her levels are off the chart. A normal person would have about 100 count, Jesse has over 5,000. This is a problem, as it can settle in her heart and other places and cause problems. So, on Friday she will go under the knife again and have a liver biopsy to check the amount in her liver. They are 95% sure she will start on a medication to help rid her body of the extra iron. Jesse is very excited about once again going under anesthesia, she loves it. Hopefully this will be out patient, and she will not have to stay the night. We have a women's breakfast with the ladies at church, and would hate to miss that.
