The doctor came in and talked to us. They have such good doctors taking care of Mel...what a blessing. Her Neutrophils went down to 200, we were pretty bummed but the doctor said it is normal and to not worry. They are hoping to do Melanie's bone marrow test on Wed. or Thurs. We are praying that there will be an absence of Leukemia cells.
Mel had lots of visitors today. Her home teacher Mark Daines and his wife Judy came, Aunt Eva came as well as Grandpa and Grandma Perkes (maternal grandparents). Later in the day she had a visit from Liz and Rich Mitchell (Angie's brother and sister in-law) who brought her Holiday Inn...a huge favorite of Mel's. She also was visited by Alean and Diana who she worked with at Providence Elementary. Mel enjoys the visits, especially on her good days. She was in such good spirits today.
There have been several donations to Mel's charitable account. We can't begin to express the gratitude we feel. There are tears of joy every day because of the many generous people who we feel lucky to call friends and family. Thank you from our whole family...are hearts are full to bursting!
Here are a few pictures from today.
Melanie showing off her delicious pie cakes from Grandma Perkes. Right before I took this pic Mel said, "I get more than one". Our cousins will know what she means by that. ;)
A basket of goodies from Uncle David and Aunt Cindy. It was full of some yummy treats and snacks...Mel was really excited to get this! She has had a huge sweet tooth lately.
Keep smiling Mel, it lights up the room!
