On June 1, 2010 our two year old, "Little Air Bear," was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Type M7. After enduring 146 days at Primary Children's Hospital, Erin is now in remission and living a full life at home with our family. Her strong will and constant happy smile is an inspiration to us all. Through our difficult circumstances we found great strength and peace in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for checking in on us.

All together

We are all together at Primary Children's today! We've been having a great time together reading books, playing with toys, and watching DragonTales. Erin is doing well. She had platelets yesterday and a blood transfusion today so she has a little more energy now. Her ANC (fighter white blood cells) are still zero. Her bone marrow sore is looking so much better and is much smaller thanks to her slue of antibiotics. She is done with her eye drops and she doesn't have to be hooked up to her IV as often so she is able to travel around her little room.

In case you were wondering (and for our records), she is on four antibiotics Fortaz, Septra, Vancomycin, and Voriconazole. She is taking Nefedipine to lower her blood pressure, and she is taking Vistaril/Hydroxyzine/Atarax for nausea.
