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.

2 Weeks

Erin has been at Primary Children's for round #4 for 2 weeks now.  Her ANC (immune fighter white blood cells) has been at zero for 6 days.  At midnight we checked her line repair and flushed one of the lines, it worked like a charm.  Her other line however wouldn't flush.   The nurse did a TPA, which breaks down any clots in her line, and by 4am her second line flushed just fine.

Her blood cultures today have come back negative for infection.  Yeah!  I hope it continues to stay that way.  She still has a clear runny nose and a cough, probably from the rhinovirus which is basically a common cold.  She hasn't had a fever since last night, and even then it wasn't high enough to give her Tylenol for.  Despite being woken up several times in the night, she woke up really happy.  We've had a great day together.  We have snuggled and played starfall.com on the computer.  We have watched Barney goes to school 3 times and the Care Bears 2 times.  We put up some fall window clings on the big window in our room.  It is such a joy to be here with Erin, she is such a sweetie and there is a wonderful peaceful feeling in her room.  Her Heavenly Father loves her.
