The waiting game ....

Not much to report.The day has been fairly uneventful.Zoey was in such a great mood all day but then again,what else is new.She had a few visitors from her NICU days and she wowed them all.She waved and charmed them and did her thing.Everyone feels so absolutely bad for us,especially her and I find myself having to reassure them!She also had a visit from our friend Christi,who is also Zoey's vision therapist.We had a wonderful visit and a huge thank you to Christi for keeping me company and helping me pass the time.The days seem to go relatively fast though.I cherish this time spent with my littlest love.I know that may sound strange to some and yes I would like to be passing the time with her at the park instead but here we are and I am making the most of this one on one time with her.We really just play and snuggle and read and snuggle some more.She is so magical to me and just doing simple things like changing her diaper gives opportunity to connect with her and just look at each other and remind myself what a blessing she is to me and all of our lives.Friday they will be doing another bone marrow biopsy.Protocol is to check on things 14 days in.If there a zero blasts,immature cells,then we continue to wait for her numbers to rise.If immature cells are found then we jump to Round Two.PLEASE pray for zero blasts.We really want her numbers to recover a bit,head home for a week and then come back for the next round.So pray hard all my faithful friends.I am off to bed or rather bench and then another day ...for that I am grateful for.

Was wonderful to see Zoey and you yesterday. It's obvious where Zoey gets her beauty and strength (from her mom)! You are both amazing ladies. Praying for zeros... with love and healing thoughts, Christi Harman
