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.

Final Results

I received a phone call from Dr. Verma today and she said that Erin's bone marrow aspirate results showed NO TRACES of Leukemia.  She also said that Erin's ECHO and EKG both looked normal. 

Erin will get her central line out next week.  She is really very excited about that!  She totally understands what is going on.  This morning she told me "no more eye drops, no more chemo!"  I reminded her that her tubes were coming out next week and she said, "no more tube-ees."

I just feel so blessed that we are at the end.  I am so thankful that Erin is getting back to normal.  Her hair is coming in full force.  Yesterday she said, "I found my hair.  It is so soft."  When her hair fell out, we used to say that she "lost" her hair.  Now, she is happy to have "found" it.

On to a Happy New Year!
