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.

Day 31

Erin's counts came upish today!

White blood count 0.7.  Yesterday it was 0.5  This is the highest it's been this round.  (normal is 6.0-17.0)

ANC is still zero.

She had 1 Monocyte.

Platelets were 34 yesterday.  Today they are 37!!  (Normal range is 400ish) When the platelets stop dropping and start coming up that is a REALLY good thing,

The BEST news is that she has 3 Neutrophils!  It's a tiny amount, but it's WAY better than 0 Neutrophils.

Looks like she'll be home soon.  All I want for Christmas is to have my family together!
