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.

Today Erin's ANC has hit ZERO. So from here on out we start with being ultra cautious again. If you are sick or if you are around someone sick we ask that you please keep your sickness to yourself and not share it with us. Erin had a transfusion today and seems to be really doing well. She enjoyed having her Aunt Emarie stay with her last night and John is on his way to Primary Children's today to take his shift with Erin. She had her last eye drops this morning and that just makes things so much easier. The eye drops are just an over-the-counter saline drop (I'm sure the hospital charges more than WalMart though) that are necessary to keep her eyes moist while she is doing chemotherapy. One of her chemotherapy drugs can damage the eyes, and keeping the eyes moist will help that to not happen.
