I am so excited to post some good news again tonight! Melanie's blood levels were up even further this morning. Her neutrophils are at 1.0!!! Awesome! Her hematocrit (red blood cells) are at 30, all on their own without any transfusion! Her white blood counts are up too. Her platelets are still low, but they are expected to go up as well. Now if the nausea would just go away...the doctors are thinking that the nausea is due to graph vs. host which is good in small amounts. Dr. Ash told Mel that she may be able to leave the hospital tomorrow! It is remarkable that just days ago we were looking at plan B and now here we are with the possibility of discharge...what a roller coaster ride. We are excited to see what tomorrow brings. Thank you so much for all of your prayers!

What Scott and and Leslie gave me on Saturday. They also gave me Willow Trees' Angel of Hope that we obviously failed to add to the pic. We had a great visit! Thanks for making me smile!
