Keeping Perspective

I haven't written an update in a couple days and I would like to apologise for that. It has been a struggle for me to find a way to relay the news with a positive perspective.

Hannah did not make counts again on Monday, instead they slipped even further down. Which means her bone marrow has not recovered enough to start the new round of chemo. We have another week of no treatment. Three weeks is the most she can go without treatment. I endlessly worry because for 95% of Leukemia kids, going off treatment for a bit is an ok thing. They were at zero cancer cells left in their bodies at the three week mark. Hannah was not. This time off was a blessing last week when I thought her counts were rising. Hopefully, with this week her body will recover and I will be worrying for nothing! Hannah is a strong little girl.

So, we have an appt. on Tuesday to check her counts again. If she makes it then we can begin chemo on Wednesday. Please pray for Hannah's body to recover enough this week to continue on treatment. I really appreciate all the prayers for Hannah.

  1. As always, you are both in my thoughts and heart. I have the greatest confidence in Hannah's ability to make it through this. In any battle there are ups and downs and bad news can only be followed by good. Keep your head up.

  4. Carrie,

    You don't have to always have a positive spin everyday...it's okay to let go sometimes.....and let it out....I'd imagine you need to.

    This is a bump in the road. You will see Hannah through this.....Cancer hasn't met the Grage women before and all their strength!

    My positive thoughts are going your families way everyday.

    Call, email anytime.

  6. Tonight at least 20 people said your name as then said your prayers, asking the powers they believed to give you strength.

    Hannah, you have strength, perhaps this prayer is for us to not feel so sad over your fight. Either way, may you kick this cancer between the eyes and show it ur the boss.

    Whatever happense we know you are strong!
