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.

MRI Results

Dr. Fluchell (another one of our favorite Oncologists) called today and gave me the MRI results.  He said that the Cellulitis was still infectious and inflammatory looking, but that it had improved since her last MRI.  We were thankful to find out that it was not abscessed!  I think that it looks even better today than it did yesterday, but - it is still there!

I am taking Erin to Primary Children's tomorrow morning for her Bone Marrow Aspirate.  They want to look at the Cellulitis again and most likely they will just send us back home and won't admit her for the last round of chemotherapy until Monday.  They are so concerned about the damage that the Cellulitis could do to her skin tissues when they drop her ANC (fighter white blood cells) to zero for a few weeks.  So, to be safe we will most likely put off the chemotherapy unless we have a miracle and find that the Cellulitis has completely disappeared by tomorrow morning.
