This is Brandon, posting for Amy since she is too tired and weak to do so herself right now. Since I don't type even half as fast as she does, this will be a significantly shorter posting than you all are used to. Her white blood count has been holding steady for the last several days at between three and four hundred, her hemoglobin is down to 6.7 and her platelets to 28. She will most likely be getting a blood transfusion, and possibly platelets again, today, though it may end up being tomorrow as they are being extra careful to make sure they have an exact match now. With the low hemoglobin count she has just been extremely physically weak and tired the last couple of days. She has also had more fevers, mostly low, but yesterday had several high fevers (depending on whether you go by ear or mouth they were either 104.5-104.9 or 102.2-103.1, respectively) and has had a hard time keeping food down both yesterday and the day before.
Everyone's comments and emails are very encouraging for her and she wants me to make sure I thank everyone for her. So, thank you. Thank you also for your prayers -- knowing that people are praying for her is the biggest encouragement for her. She has continued to receive ever so many cards (her count now is up around 300) and each one blesses her so. There are so many of you that have written such touching messages and emails that she wants to reply to, but just hasn't had the energy to do so, so know that she is encouraged and thankful for your kind and caring words. There are also several of you going through your own trials (health, familial, life, etc...) that she has been keeping in her own prayers and I just wanted to try to encourage you by letting you know that she thinks of you often.
Once she gets the transfusion she should have some more energy and will likely post an update of her own, but in the meantime if you could continue to pray for her, specifically that she'll get past these fevers and that her white blood count will start to climb, we would both be very grateful. Thank you all so much for your love and kindness.
