Kennedy's Oncology Appointment

Today Kennedy had an oncology appointment. This was a check up for both girls. Right now Kennedy goes every 6 months and Kellsey goes every three. I was thinking that today was the day that Kennedy would be declared "cancer free". We were told that would happen 5 years after she went into remission, which is about 2 weeks from now. However, they said today that it's actually 5 years after her chemo ended so we have to wait until mid-September to get that official status. Her counts looked GREAT today though, so in September we plan on partying! ;) One more appointment down!

Good news for Kennedy!!! So glad her counts are looking great and she is so close to that "Cancer FREE" status! As for Kellsey- we will certainly keep her in our prayers that her screwy blood work is just her normal!!!

On a side note - CANCER SUCKS!

Maybe it's some funky side effect of Ukrainian baby prison? ; ) Seriously...praying!!!

So did the numbers change? Or just have stayed the same? So strange. Well, hopefully she has just odd blood and all is fine and remains fine. What would you be looking for that's different in her though? Might be hard to figure with her not feeling pain and all, no?

Yippy for Kennedy!! And i am still saying Yippy for kellsey as they haven't declared her wacky blood work as anything:).

So glad for Kennedy! My little girl has DS and went through chemo and some of her bloodwork is still off and her Dr. thinks that it's just normal for her, hoping this is the case for Kellsey!

We celebrated for Mickey at 5 years post remission and then again at 5 years off treatment! LOL

Was going through closets (and that about did me in with one of the closets) and found my Kennedy shirt! Hard to believe it's been 5 years! The Lord is always there working in your family!
There is hope in the Lord! Praying right now!
Psalms 16:7-9 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

Lifting up prayers to the Only One who can hear!
Psalms 34:4, 6-7 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. (6-7) This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
Psalms 31:1-3 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.

My 8 year old daughter with DS just got her blood results back from an annual physical and her WBC count was low at 3.2. Last year it was 6.1. Her pediatrician wants to wait 3-4 months before we recheck it, but I'm a wreck waiting that long. From your experience, do you have any insight for me. I feel like we should recheck it more quickly, but I'm no physician, just a mom who is concerned! All other blood results were within the normal ranges.

Continuing to lift up prayers!
Psalms 31:5, 7-8 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth (7-8) I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities; And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.
