Amazing Rebound

KK's platelets are up! They went from 50 on Tuesday to 106...yes, 106!

Nurse Jill (who drew KK's blood this morning), KK, and I were guessing what the platelet number would be. Jill said 96 so they could "override" it and go ahead with treatment, KK said 90, and I said 110 claiming that God was going to show up and they would be able to go ahead with treatment without having to override it.

Mary Ann, the nurse practitioner, said that if she was a betting woman she never would have guessed that they would more than double in three days. In fact, she expected them to be at 40. I told her I knew that God had this.

So, they were able to give KK the Avastin infusion today and she will begin the five days of Temozolomide (at the full dosage!) tonight.

And, for those that prayed for no disruption in our Disney plans next month, they are not planning to delay the next set of treatments as long as her white blood cell, ANC, and platelet numbers are good!

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Ephesians 3:20-21
