The Best Visitor

Melanie was able to have the best visitor for her today. My dad and Kaden drove down this morning and spent the day. It really helped Melanie's spirits! Our sweet cousin, Julie also came and brought some of our favorite, yummy butterhorn rolls. Melanie was even able to eat one. My mom said that she has eaten more today. This is probably because her throat has been feeling a bit better the last few days. Yesterday when I was there, she hadn't received any pain medicine. A big step! Melanie also went for a walk tonight. I am so glad she was having a better day emotionally today.

Good things are happening medically as well. Today her neutrophils doubled. YEAH! We will continue to wait and watch them keep coming up. The bacteria she had in her central line earlier this week cleared! Melanie was very relieved that she won't have to have new central line put in.

Thank you to everyone for your prayers. We all continue to have faith that things are in the Lords hand. Melanie is very optimistic, as are we all!
