Briley has felt great so far today!! She has been to the playroom, and played instruments with Gracie during music therapy!! She also helped paint for the Super Bowl party tomorrow. Roger Stauback and Michael Irvin are supposed to be here!! Her counts looked good today. Her blast count went from a 12 to a 6, so hopefully tomorrow it will be gone. It's being stubborn. She missed being in the low risk chemo group by a small amount. The Leukemia count in the blood had to be less than 0.01% and hers was 0.015%. She will now hopefully be in the standard average risk group if there is no Leukemia in the bone marrow by Day 29. We are on Day 10 now, so please pray that her body fights off the Leukemia quickly. Her ANC count, this measures her ability to fight off infection, was 192 today. Yesterday it was 72. The doctor said this is a good indicator that the Leukemia is being killed off in the bone marrow, and the bone marrow is starting to produce good things. We just have to keep praying that the chemo keeps working, and that her body is able to fight off this disease. Thank you for the prayers!! God is great!!
