Briefly ....





Things remain about the same with Miss Zoey.Her labs show little change,which is actually good.The last three weeks has yielded a steady decline of platelets and red blood cells,both necessitating multiple transfusions but we might and this is a cautious might,we might, have leveled off.Zoey's platelets have only gone down by 4 thousand in three days and that is huge in my book.Usually they take a massive hit but this minimal decrease could be a sign that her marrow is going to kick it up a bit.Could be but ... we will wait and see.Speculation is futile in this numbers game.One thing for certain is that she has been extremely happy and giggly and chatty and so much fun.She appears from the outside,to be feeling better than I have seen her feel in a very long time.Please pray that she will be on an upswing here sooner rather than later.That is all tonight.I got home at about 10:15,took by obligatory 2 mile run,cleaned up,picked up,did some laundry and now ... bed.Thank you to all of you for your support of me in my latest endevour.So many incredible comments.Incredibly beautiful comments.Next week on the agenda ... fundraising ideas.Yuck ... but has to be done.

Zoey looks lovely as usual.I think you are about to inspire me to get back in shape after the damage Miss Emmie made to my body. If you can run with your schedule, I should be able to manage a walk.Bad back and knees, can't run...Shucks!

Oh she looks GREAT! We will be praying her counts are on the upswing. She continues to amaze me with her million dollar smile and her full head of hair! She really doesn't look like a sick child at all.

What a blessing that she's feeling better. We're praying for those numbers to get where they need to be so Zoey can come home! Heather we are here to support you in reaching your marathon goal. Having read the article in the Star yesterday about Jessica and Zoey, all I could think is what a blessing Zoey has been to so many people and what an incredible young lady Jessica has become. You and Jessica are going to raise a ton of money and you're going to be amazing.

I have been following your little Zoey for a bit now, left a message the other day on your latest endeavor, just want to know how much you need to raise for the marathon/fundraiser. You don't need to post it but you can email me if you want, agrasso@wildblue.net . Money is tight for everyone but I think I might be able to help, I really have no idea how much someone would need to raise for a marathon? Angela Grasso

Zoey looks beautiful! I'm sending mass amounts of prayer your way, Heather :) You are an inspiration!

Victoria Strong said...

I agree with Kele, running at 10:15 after such a day -- you will have to bottle that energy and sell it :) Big kisses to Miss Darling.
