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.

Little Air Bear and Dad
Erin was so happy to have her Mom & Dad
in the room with her.
She likes it when we tickle her.
I love it when she covers her mouth when she laughs.
She loves to run up and down the halls.
It is very good exercise!
Her ANC is ZERO now.
She won't be allowed out of her room until
she's released from the hospital (estimated 9/10).
She loves to explore while she's out.
The nurses let her peek into just about anything.
Aunt Diana came to play and stayed the night with Erin.
Erin's is doing pretty well. She is sleeping a lot these days and she is still on Zofran for the nausea. She had a blood transfusion a few days ago and she's due for platelets in a day or two. The skin on her hands is still peeling and her lips are peeling too now. She has started developing blood blisters on her gums but they don't seem to bother her. She has also grown very addicted to root beer. We haven't been able to get her to drink anything (even water) other than root beer. Maybe the root beer settles her stomach and water might make her more nauseous? We don't know, but she's a little soda pop drinker now. She and my mother played a great game of hide and seek this morning. It is amazing what a two year old can find entertaining while not being allowed to leave her room. Thanks for checking in on us today. We feel the strength of your faith and prayers.
