May 25th update
I must apologize as I do not have Carrie's ability to lighten the mood and impact in passing on updates. Nor do I have her strength and focus to remember all of the medical and technical mumbo jumbo. Hannah was readmitted to Children's last night with a very high fever. They were able to get the fever down, but it resurfaced later. Hannah has had a terrible headache that is so severe she can not move her head. The doctors think it may be a form of meningitis or that the leukemia has made it's way into her spinal column, where it has not been seen previously. She is not responding to the current chemotherapy regimen, but is suffering from all of the side affects. Her test results have been mixed and somewhat confusing. Sorry that I am not better at sugar coating, but this is very hard for me. I have to just spit it out. I'm sure my accuracy in relating everything has been somewhat compromised by my emotions. I am constantly amazed at Carrie's fortitude, perseverance and composure. She is an incredible mother who is going to carry her daughter through this battle. Thank you all for your concern and support of Hannah and Carrie!
